Urban Toys

Narrative Environments’ alum Leticia Lozano works at Laboratory para la Ciudad in Mexico City and leads the playful city research area. Here, they explore the scope of play as a tool for urban development, placemaking, underused public space activation and social cohesion, and as a channel to incorporate and encourage children’s participation in urban affairs.
