Hello and let's play


#1

Hi, I am Lydia Manitsidou, I am an architect and I am excited that I have just discovered the Trust in Play. I enjoy playing with space in my everyday professional life, I take life as a game and game as a life, I rediscovered the fun and power of play with my daughters and our friends. Play can positively transform us, it can create new meanings and new perspectives. I believe in the power of play as a transformative power for our well-being. I sense that fun is missing and play can be a facilitator for fun. My recent play story has to do with designing play and playing design, creating space plays for groups of children with the intention to understand and play with space so as to be more conscious about it, motivate and demand for better urban built and unbuilt environments. When playing anything can happen and that leads to open possibilities and freedom of creation. I wish I had discovered Trust in Play open call some days before so that I would have had the time to better prepare my submission but I am glad and overwhelmed that I had the chance to submit my wish to take part in it even last minute. I hope to meet you all and share our play experiences
