The rooftop playground

The playground is a place where most of our first accidents tend to take place. But while falling from the climbing frame might have sucked at the age of 4, just spare a thought for the kids who live in this building.

Danish firm JDS Architects (who were also behind the suicidal ski jump) have designed a mini-park on the rooftop of three penthouses in Copenhagen.

Aimed at those city kids who don't have gardens to play with their ponies in, the area boasts a small grass hill and a viewing platform. Check out that worryingly low fence. Might be useful for discipline.

We're mildly envious and not just because we've been banned from playing on our roof for health, safety and life conservation reasons.
