    AN EXPERIMENT IN PLAYGROUND DESIGN, by ROBIN C. MOORE.

    Original MASTER'S THESIS: Submitted in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Master of City Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, November, 1966.

    Plain yellow card covers, plastic spiral bound, photocopied or mimeographed inner pages, 164 pages, pages printed on one side only.

    From the Introduction: ******The subject is an experimental playground built and studied during a seven month period, April to October 1966, in Lower Roxbury, Boston. The overall objective of the study was to produce a transferable design framework of use to playground designers in the future. The approach taken towards play was a serious one, it was assumed to have important potential influence on individual development. The experiment per se and the creation of a viable playground was part of the same dynamic process. The Initial Design was continually modified and checked by feedback, from comments of the children and from field observations of their behavior.******

    Dedicated to his wife and "to the children of Lenox and Camden Streets (Boston) whose love of play was the major inspiration."

    GOOD condition: The plain card covers of the thesis have scrapes, rubs, some spots and edgewear; internally, there is a previous owner's signature at the top of the title page (Wayne Leong, possibly of Leong Architects, an architecture firm in St. Helena, California), toning to the first and last few pages, otherwise the pages are tight bright, clean clear and unmarked.

    You can read much about ROBIN MOORE and his wide influence on the field of Playground and Play Space designs by simply typing in "Robin Moore" together with "Playgrounds" into your search bar. Here is a bit about him (from the Internet):

    ******Robin Moore, has a Diploma in Architecture from the Bartlett School of Architecture, London University, 1962; and a Master of City Planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1966. He is the "M" in MIG Inc., a highly successful Berkeley California based landscape and playground design firm.

    He has been involved in numerous city playground and open space designs throughout the U.S. and many places throughout the world. He has won many international awards for his contributions to the field of design including from Sweden, Japan, and Argentina, countries where his work in the design of outdoor play facilities for children and families are used as a model.

    Moore is the author or co-author of Childhood's Domain: Play and Place in Child Development (1986), Plants for Play (1993), the Play for All Guidelines (1987), the Complete Playground Book (1993), Natural Learning (1997), and numerous articles on the use of the outdoor environment by children and youth and families, and their involvement in the planning and design process.******

    From the Introduction: "The City of San Francisco and the San Francisco Port Authority have determined that it is essential at this time to ensure full use of its waterfront in a manner consistent with the waterfront's position as a unique and irreplaceable resource of not only the City but the entire Bay Area.

    The purpose of the Northern Waterfront Plan is to guide future development in all areas on and contiguous to the harbor in a manner consistent with the interests of San Francisco. The plan must provide mechanisms and guidelines whereby public and private interests can work together to fulfill the social, economic and physical objectives with maximum benefit for all.

    The challenges posed by this study have been to integrate an authentic maritime atmosphere into the character and fabric of the City, and to capture in a strong and positive manner the unique opportunities for imaginative and dramatic development of San Francisco's waterfront."

    Hardcovers, no dustjacket as issued, 11x14 inches oblong, 146 pages.

    Contains 85 ILLUSTRATIONS including maps, drawings, photos and architectural renderings.

    GOOD condition, the covers are rubbed and scraped but still solid and doing their job well, there is some wear and a small hole to the front free endpaper, some of the inner hinges are cracked and a bit weak but still holding (this book is known for its weak glue binding), otherwise the inner pages are bright, clean, clear and unmarked.

    This was the beginning of the transformation of San Francisco's waterfront from an ugly, elevated freeway framed, desolate area, into the techie mecca, sailboats and uber expensive lofts, and playgrounds for the rich, that it is today.

    INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This book is large and heavy and will require additional shipping charges. After placing your order you will be notified of the additional charges and be able to accept or reject them before your payment is processed. Or you can contact us ahead of time to find out the shipping charge to your country. Thanks.

    ******5 years in the making, Black Rock City, NV - The New Ephemeral Architecture of Burning Man is the sequel of a sold out and sought after volume 1 that was dedicated to the ephemeral architecture of Burning Man published by Real Paper Books in 2011.

    Instead of reprinting it, we decided to move on and present an entirely new survey made of 200 new images from 2011 to 2015 where vernacular and perennial solutions coexist along experimental and rule breaking designs, with foreword by Zahid Sardar and essays by Burning Man co founder Harley K. Dubois, Fred Bernstein architecture critic and AIASF architect Glenn Lym.******
