I remember back when Richard wrote about this rooftop pool because the way it was built made it look like you could swim right over the edge and plummet to your death. Putting that pool on top of a skyscraper right in the middle of the city made for a fantastic view, and I wouldn’t mind taking a swim in it myself.
This rooftop playground reminds me a little of that pool. It’s once again, an unusual structure built on top of a tall building. I suppose when there isn’t any room to build on the ground level, the only place to go is up. The question is, would you slide down this slide? An even more interesting question would be, would you let your small child slide down that slide?
Do you see that metal fence in the pictures? Is it just me, or is that really low? Doesn’t that look like the kind of fence we used to jump over all the time when we were kids? I would visit this playground, but I would think of it as an amusement park. That slide looks like a modified roller coaster in my mind. This playground is on top of three penthouses in Copenhagen. It was designed and built by JDS Architects. Hmm… After reading what I’ve written here, I’ve decided maybe I’m no longer the daredevil I used to be. Bummer.
