Sculptural Playground ANNABAU Architektur und Landscha


The retro-fitting of the “Schulberg” hill in Wiesbaden creates an extraordinary new public space whose outstanding architectural beauty, overlooking the city centre, is attracting people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds to meet and communicate through the action of play.


The heart of the new public space is constituted by an artistically shaped playground consisting of a large spatial structure. Because of its unusual and sculptural design the new playground attempts both to highlight the urban importance of the site and offer an attractive and complex range of gaming activities.


The main defining element is a spatial sculpture consisting of two green steel pipes winding and floating in distance and height. In some places the steel pipes cantilever up to 15m, leaving a lasting impression. The pentagonal shape of the structure was derived from the historic shape of the city of Wiesbaden, while the dramatic swoops of the pipes refer to urban situations on the site, generating entrance situations or overlooking points.


In between this structure a tensed climbing net creates a loop – a continuous sequence of gaming activities for children and teens. Within the loop there are six main stopovers for playing activities: bouncing membranes, a liane garden for climbing and swinging, a ‘tunnel’, rubber granulate plates designed to be jumped along, a nest swing, a steep climbing wall and an exhilarating downhill slide.


A modeled topography is enclosed by the climbing sculpture. Small hills and rings made from green soft rubber granulate offer play spaces for younger children and resting spaces for teens and parents. A boulevard constituted by a wide pathway around the playground provides benches for parents and the elderly to watch their children play and enjoy the stunning outlook. An anthracite, elegant round curb follows the pentagonal shape of the playground and separates the playground from this boulevard.


Playground: steel pipe frame, steel and rope playground system
Floor: rubber granulate, sand, gravel, granite kerb

    I simply wished to appreciate you all over again.
    I am not sure the things I would have gone through in the absence of the type of ideas shared by you on such area.

    Completely was an absolute hard problem for me personally, but noticing a specialised avenue you processed it took me
    to weep with delight. I am just grateful for your service and
    then wish you find out what a powerful job
    you happen to be accomplishing educating people thru your blog.
    More than likely you have never come across any of us.

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. But imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with
    images and videos, this site could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Wonderful blog!

    Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long
    as I provide credit and sources back to your webpage?
    My blog is in the exact same area of interest as
    yours and my visitors would genuinely benefit from some of the information
    you provide here. Please let me know if this ok with you.
