Child’s Play: Designing for Early Learning
An associate at Hayball, Natalia Krysiak specializes in the design of child-oriented learning and play environments. Her area of research focuses on child-friendly cities and how the built environment can contribute to the health and wellbeing of children. In 2019 Natalia was awarded a Churchill Fellowship.
Her research investigates design interventions and policies that focus on playful urban and learning environments, exploring the best practices for designing child-friendly neighbourhoods in Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Canada and the UK. Based on this research, Natalia founded Cities for Play, which aims to inspire designers, planners and communities to design more child-friendly and playful cities.
