Former Wind Turbines Used to Create Dutch Playground

The Dutch are most known for tulips, cannabis and windmills. One Dutch architecture firm has recently put one of those national icons (don’t worry, it’s legal) to good use.

Architecture firm 2012Architecten designed a Rotterdam playground using discarded wind turbine blades. Wikado playground might look dangerous on first glance, but the debris is both fun and functional.

To fully appreciate the architect’s intervention, you have to burrow into the bellies of the blades, where you’ll find children gleefully tunneling from one end to the other.
