The Junk Playground: creative destruction as antidote to delinquency

The Junk Playground: creative destruction as antidote to delinquency

Published by ÄrSon Deåls
This paper examines the Junk Playground from the perspective of architectural and urban history, in order to historicize the ways in which play was promoted as an antidote to delinquency, by framing its history and practice in relation to a discourse on citizenship. Perhaps the notion that playgrounds can prevent aggression would appear to us today as naïve, but in certain important respects, it provides a critical reflection on our contemporary methods of organizing the urban environment to combat delinquency.
