Founded in 2013, The City of Play is a practice rooted in Architecture and Urban Design, focused on the needs and rights of children and young people in our built environment.

We work to promote and create environments and experiences which exemplify our ethos, and which better engage children and young people in our built environment, planning and design. 

We respect and seek the views and input of young people, as is their right, implementing participatory planning, design and creative processes; empowering them as agents of change within their communities and instilling a sense of appreciation and duty of care for the places in which we live and play.
