Grounded in play theory and the politics of play, Play As You Go calls into question the dominant ways in which time and space designed in our current system: an architecture that reinforces the logic of capital and control. This project offers multiple approaches that uncover alternative visions of playful spatial design and more embodied, creative interactivity with our surroundings, ourselves and others. 


The project toys with different formats and invites participation through a range of channels, at varied levels of engagement. The play is ongoing and might pop up when you least expect it.
