At Berkshire Botanical Garden: ‘PlayDate’ Designers Re-Imagine Play House Structures

Nine local designers and builders interpret play house structures for Berkshire Botanical Garden’s summer exhibition, “PlayDate: Playhouses in the Garden”.

The PlayDate structures vary in size and theme, from a medieval fortress, to an outdoor transparent “play room” and a cubed, mirrored structure. Other designs include a tree trunk transformed into a hobbit house, a 19th Century shepherd’s wagon, a tee-pee made of saplings, a sanctuary, and an antique aviary tea party. A permanent installation at the Garden, the Martha Stewart Cottage, received a makeover for the exhibition, transforming the traditional garden cottage into a wild woodland themed room inspired by the Garden’s own woodland trail. A total of 11 structures are included in the exhibition.
