[Xmca-l] Interesting "post-apocalyptic" playground



I thought that this was a fascinating way of taking play beyond what we
have imagined - allowing kids to play with fire, sharp sticks, and other
"dangerous" objects:

The link is about the making of a video about this playground, but there
are great images and videos that describe the playground.

Seems fascinating, no?

What do you think? Does play need to be more structured than this? How does
this fit with the CHAT view of play?
