We love to see you smile a bit more play a bit more discover a bit more...

PLAYING TOWARDS THE NEW WORLD WITH HAPPIER PEOPLE, MORE VITAL CITIES AND A DEEPER CONSCIOUSNESS OF FUTURE GENERATIONS.

PLAY THE CITY


We create games in the public space to have some fun with people you know and you don't know. And to set you in motion. There are different themes and ways that match the DNA of the city. You can find the urban playgrounds at parks, squares, stations and discoverable new other places.




Explore your city. Start today.

Locations


Playgrounds are being built on social & urban objectives. This varies from 'challenging' neigherboods to reducing tension around construction sites, but also reviving specific city squares and streets, let certain target groups connect better with each other, or create greater awareness on topics.

How to play


There are three different themes and the play is easy. Find one of the PLYGRND.city urban games. Follow the blue coloured wayfinders. Play the game in small groups, preferably with people you haven't met before for the most fun experience. The goal is simple: simply Finish the route.


URBAN WORKOUTS

URBAN WORKOUTS
Urban sports are hot! Where will you work out? In the gym or on the streets? What is your favourite urban workout? Bootcamp, calisthenics, running or maybe just an easy walk. PLYGRND.city challenges you and your friends to play or battle together!
Wayfinders blue/orange | Phone not needed
Play time approx. 20 min.

HAPPY ROUTES

PHILOSOPHY ROUTES
The PLYGRND.city Happy Routes are about mindfullness, poetry and other nice content for the brain, spirit and soul. Be surprised what you will find on your way. It's fun to have a nice Sunday walk, but it's even more fun to do a good deed. Pick up some elders at the local elderly house, put them in their wheelchairs, and explore the city! Karma points guaranteed.
Wayfinders blue/gold | Phone not needed
Play time between 45 - 60 min.

Wayfinders blue/pink | Phone optional
Play time between 30 - 60 min.

Social Design





We have designed a co-creative workflow process because, nowadays citizens know very well what they want and they like to be involved in their surroundings. In the creation of the playgrounds of PLYGRND.city we work in a co-creative flow. We analyse the urban area from the available (big) data, we do our own research and we involve users from the start to get a relevant and spot on program. Co-creation has many advantages like the spirit of ownership, a strong sense of responsibility and the feeling that the people are heard. It is great for the energy among the people from the start of the project and it even enhances social cohesion & social control.

We to make new friends.
