George I. Sanchez Collaborative Community School
Albuquerque, New Mexico


The playground was "designed for little hands" and for physical and intellectual engagement. There are fitness elements for 7-8th graders who feel too grown up for "little kid" playground equipment, but nevertheless want an outlet for their energy. There's even a pod-like fun motion experience meant as a calming space for children on the autism spectrum who need a break from sensory input.

The George I. Sanchez Collaborative Community School in Albuquerque, N.M. has 1,200 pupils, spanning from kindergarten through eighth grade. The school needed a play space with the capacity to serve a diverse student population. Playworld worked with school leadership to formulate a playground with integrated play flow, and intuitive navigation to facilitate kids' access to age-appropriate play. The playground elements were designed to complement the color palette and architecture of the school itself, while challenging each child at his or her own level.
