With his distinctive playground designs, Dutch architect Aldo van Eyck has left his mark on generations of children in Amsterdam. Over the years, he created a network of more than 700 playgrounds throughout the city, their minimalistic design intended to stimulate imagination and curiosity. Today, only a handful of these are still intact, the others having been removed or transformed to share space with brightly coloured slides and swings. This special publication revisits the seventeen remaining playgrounds in Amsterdam’s centre created by Van Eyck, including that of the Rijksmuseum.
