Botanic Gardens Children’s Center

Location: Cambridge, MA

studioMLA worked with the staff and director at the Botanic Gardens Children’s Center (BGCC) on Harvard University’s campus to reinvent their play area.

The existing play area was transformed into a natural environment that includes a dry streambed fed by water from a pump and is shaded by Birch trees. Water sprays have been added to a large sand area, providing opportunities for endless exploration of water, sand and mud.

studioMLA is currently continuing our work with BGCC to design a sensory and natural play environment for their infants and toddlers.
