Cargo loaded. Ready for takeoff. Over and out.
Kastrup Airport in Copenhagen is the largest airport in the Nordic countries with 30 million passengers in 2018 and one of the oldest international airports in Europe. It is known for its architectural qualities and well assorted dining and shopping opportunities. MONSTRUM was assigned a corner inside of the airport to make a space for the kids, while maintaining the high standards of the airport.
The challenge of the assignment was the limited area of only 5 x 10 m. Designing a playground in such a limited space, set restraints on the size and heights of the elements as it is important to have a certain amount of falling zone around the elements. Thus, the playground had to be small, but still fun and inspiring for the kids to play in.
