What Animal Is this is a participatory development of places of interaction. Children look at the outlines of the building seen from a bird’s eye view. They treat it as a map that allows them to discover the building, to know the size and character of the space in which they are located. The map is treated as the basis for an architectural mock-up, and using the shapes that are hidden in the outlines of buildings, the children draw, stick and pull out animals, which are turned into playground equipment.

Kids imagine like entering the belly of the snake or tossing eyes of elephant like balloons or cat’s tail as a tunel to hide inside. Its important to find similarities in this functions they give and to make them real. Involving users in creation process changes the way they perceive and care about the created object or space. They feel a part of it and are open to develop new ways of using the space all the time. Creative co-design is the future of architecture that integrates.
