Set on Ipswich Waterfront, Block Magic is a constantly shifting playground
structure made from coloured crates.


Determined by local children, using dedicated software to tell us what they want, imaginative play spaces are designed then built daily as physical structures for kids to play in. The project is a collaboration between Pacitti Company and local architectural practice EDRM.


Block Magic prioritises the wants of children, encouraging young people to work together on design and build, enabling teamwork and confidence. It foregrounds kids in charge, creative imagination and young folk building their own physical and social structures.
