Jacob Palmer – BA (Hons) Architecture

Play is an important part of human development and Jacob has created a system and game where children can interact and create architecture through blocks, pieces and colour. Jacob identified architect Frank Gehry who also utilises play, with the Guggenheim, Bilbao and Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles being recognisably playful in both appearance and design.

[Play] represents to the child the externalized expression of his emotional life, and therefore in this aspect performs for the child the function taken by art in adult life.
