PLAY! is an interactive modular wall geared towards encouraging children to explore, navigate, and challenge ways they can engage and play with their environments. Through contrasting textural spheres with the basic smooth block, the wall aims to spark a tactile and visual sense of curiosity.
With options for customization regarding colour, texture, uniformity/non-uniformity, and assembly, PLAY! is designed to fit a variety of different environments and purposes. 
Examples of possible functionality include: acting as a screen for shading and lighting, a play structure that exists on the playground or inside of a classroom, and a partition wall that separates rooms for youth facilities.
