AnneMarie van Splunter’s ‘Rubber Tree’ Turns Used Tires Into a Spectacular Playground | Inhabitat – Green Design Will Save the World

It’s interesting and very “eco” but….still making up my mind on whether it would be functional? The creator suggests that  In the linked photos you can see it is surrounded by trees which it imitates. Why can’t the children play on the tree? Oh and by the way a change of attitude as to the way we treat nature/the earth will save the world, not design.

If you really want to see the designs of tyre based playgrounds by someone who left a phenomenal legacy for low income communities read the Jim Jolley tyre playground design manual.
