Abstract

We are designing and constructing a Playground for a child suffering from dwarfism.

Introduction

This design must adhere to the mother's needs as well as safety standards. We also want to incorporate some of the child, Brianna's, favorite things.
She loves: bright colors, frogs, princesses, slides, swing sets, and many other activities. Her mother Trish Tompkins only had a few constraints for our design.
She requested that we design something that can be disassembled easily, she is buying a house soon and wants to be able to take the playground with her.
She also wanted us to design it to be smaller to meet her sizing needs. There is plenty of level space in her backyard for us to work with.
After taking note of all requests and requirements we will each draft a design implementing our personal ideas and we will use these designs
in a concept evaluation to determine the best option.
