Playground Earth

quiet and active areas

EXPO 2027's immersive theme extends throughout its indoor and outdoor spaces, incorporating public art and temporary structures. Visitors navigate through various experiential streams, enjoying both quiet and active areas catering to different moods. The event aims to reintegrate play into daily life, drawing on the collaborative efforts of international participants, artists, and children to convey its message and showcase diverse cultures.

Playing in/between

indoor and outdoor spaces

Playing In/Between integrates playgrounds with venues to accommodate visitors' needs, providing unity and separation. Architectural designs facilitate seamless movement between units, while visitors can rejuvenate in lounging nooks or explore human-made landscapes after engaging with pavilions. These installations, a collaboration of local and international artists and architects, prioritize inclusivity and sustainability through research-driven solutions.

Generation playground

generation playgrounds

EXPO promotes well-being through custom-made Generation Playgrounds scattered across the site, tailored to different age groups based on research. These playgrounds offer age-specific activities, fostering socialization and shared experiences among visitors, echoing the sentiment that beauty lies in the multitude of smaller joys within communities.

Creating play

playful content

EXPO not only generates playful content, but also cultivates environments conducive to play, emphasizing tactile sensations and unconventional perspectives. Incorporating elements like optical illusions and witty artifacts, it encourages interaction and enjoyment, echoing Dewey's concept of the transaction between humans, events, and objects. Through initiatives like Creating Play, visitors engage in co-creating experiences, fostering a symbiotic relationship with the environment, reminiscent of Peter Wright's analogy of being intertwined with the artwork.

Urban interventions

interactive spaces

Pre-EXPO activities serve a dual purpose in the content strategy: transforming cities into interactive spaces with artistic interventions, while promoting the Play to Learn concept in educational institutions. The outcomes of these initiatives will be showcased in EXPO's architecture, both inside and out. By offering diverse experiences before and after the main event, EXPO extends beyond conventional boundaries, emphasizing playfulness from pre-event city transformations to post-event museum-type legacies.

Igniting the payful spirit

educational initiatives

The absence of play from both adult work and children's education has led to dull, rule-bound learning. EXPO aims to reignite youth creativity through educational initiatives, hosting workshops to foster curiosity and inspire innovation. These structured play programs across schools and kindergartens will enhance creative capacities in both arts and sciences, nurturing future innovators.
