Abstract

Family is more than a wife, a husband, and their children. Family is support and reliance. It is unconditional love. It's a concept many of us understand and feel a deep connection. This contemplative playscape is dedicated to Sarah West and her family, a former faculty member of the College of Design. This design is unified from three individual components, representative of each family member. The center piece acts as Sarah and her memory as a mother, wife, and artist. Alone, this piece could not stand. Two additional pieces brace and interlock into this center form, allowing the design to stand on its own. Together, these three members create an experience that is unique to both children and adults. It becomes a place for reflection and gathering, a place for resting and hiding, a place to jump, to run, to climb. It allows children's imagination to run wild, while still being a place to remember Sarah and her impact.
