It was intended to create a space by using a canopy shaped station,

to encourage longer staying time and process different kinds of play activities. While the small mushroom was aimed at linking the schoolyard and playground in a subtle way, with the flow and trace created by different placement of small objects, so as to facliting discovery play and simulating children curiosity.
