The Brutalist Playground

Assemble & Simon Terrill Presented By S1 Artspace

An immersive, climbable and conceptual landscape.

Visual Art,Family Event

The Brutalist Playground, an exhibition by 2015 Turner Prize winner Assemble and artist Simon Terrill, explores post-war design for play. Originally commissioned by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), this touring exhibition has been reimagined for the international Brutalist icon that is the Park Hill estate in Sheffield. Featuring a brand new commission, it investigates the materiality and visual language of postwar landscapes through an immersive, climbable and conceptual landscape.

Shifting the focus to the now lost playgrounds found at the foot of large-scale housing estates, it offers a renewed understanding and critique of the architects’ original designs and intentions.

The Brutalist Playground is made possible by Yorkshire Festival , RIBA, Arts Council England, The Elephant Trust, Urban Splash and Thornbridge Brewery.
