Waern, Annika; Back, Jon; Pysander, Eva-Lotta Sallnas; Heefer, Caspar J. H.; Rau, Andreas; Paget, Susan; Petterson, Linda


The DigiFys project explores the design of interactive landscapes for children's outdoor play. The project combines landscape architecture with design of interactive technology, working towards designs that support children in their everyday play activity, close to home. In the creative lab session, we want to co-design the play landscape together with local children. The focus is on acquiring a perspective on similarities and differences between the children's play culture in Sweden where the project originates, and Malaysia.
