A 1933 plan, as well as several other later designs for playgrounds, was never constructed. The only playground completed in Noguchi's lifetime was this one in Atlanta. Like his gardens, the playground is seen by Noguchi as a sculpture of spaces and an attempt at making sculpture a useful part of ordinary life. [paraphrased from bluffton university website]
