Assemble & Simon Terrill - The Brutalist Playground

PREVIEW: Friday 17th June, 5 – 8pm, all welcome
We are delighted to invite you to the preview of The Brutalist Playground by 2015 Turner Prize winners Assemble and artist Simon Terrill.

The Brutalist Playground explores the abstract concrete playgrounds that were designed as part of post-war housing estates in the mid-twentieth century. Originally commissioned by the Royal Institute of British Architects, it has been reimagined for the Brutalist icon that is the Park Hill estate in Sheffield.

Featuring a new commission based on Park Hill’s original playgrounds, built by architects Jack Lynn and Ivor Smith between 1957-61, it investigates the materiality and visual language of post-war landscapes through an immersive, cli mbable and conceptual landscape. The Brutalist Playground is a Yorkshire Festival Community Commission.
