Spread across multiple cities across India and abroad, Anthill Playscapes are transforming the way people perceive play. Beginning our journey of a 1000 miles with a small pilot at IIT Kharagpur in 2015, we have impacted more than 10,000 children in a short course of time and will soon be completing 1000 projects, bringing more smiles to remote, inaccessible corners of the country. Playgrounds made with love, each of them is unique in its own way, designed contextually and integrating teaching elements for learning through play. Using cost effective practices ranging from material exploration of industrial waste to localized sourcing techniques, our playscapes are modular and do-it-yourself, with a start-to-end construction timeline of less than 5 days.
We are aiming at "interactive learning environments in public spaces with a primary focus on sustainability"
Creating play spaces for children where they gather, interact, learn and develop.
Adaptive reuse of scrap tires leading to cheaper construction of playgrounds.
Awareness of 3R concept.
An organization dedicated to enhance the experience of play for all.
We are looking at revitalizing diminishing public spaces by engaging in collaborative projects that involve mobilizing the community to bring about change at their doorsteps, themselves.
There are fewer and fewer efforts in interactive space designs that can make people disconnect from their virtual world. Unused spaces, streetscapes, parks, public plazas can become the hub for community interactions at large if properly planned.
Our target audience consists not only of children, for whom we envision a new knowledge revolution through space design, but also of the elderly, the disabled, and the disengaged public catered to by constructing enabling environments that encourage awareness, discussions and meetups.
The problem with traditional social spaces for interaction is that they have been marred by traffic, congestion, pollution, lack of greenery and over population. With a focus on the 3R concept of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, we attempt to create sustainable, long lasting and impactful solutions.
Our core team comprises of five passionate architecture graduates (IIT Kharagpur B.Arch 2015) who have also been individually working towards coming up with architectural solutions to emerging problems in society.
