Design Challenge
: The aim of The Lappset International Design Competition is to challenge traditional playground concepts. Lappset is looking for new, inspiring, brave and out-of-the-box ideas for future playgrounds. The core idea is to create a meeting point that unites three different generations; children, teens and the elderly.  The competition welcomes any types of controversial, innovative and mind-opening wild ideas.
The competition is divided into two categories: the Category for Playground Area and the Category for Playground Equipment. Participants can leave their proposals for both categories or, alternatively, for one of them.
