Pool Floats Transformed into Incredibly Colorful Playlands

LIKE architects playLAND installations recently delighted the young and young at heart alike during Paredes de Coura, Portugal’s “O Mundo ao Contrário” (“The World Upside-Down”) festival. Using colorful pool floats, the team created 3 separate installations: an impromptu stage for performances, a tower perfect for wild imaginations, and a tunnel large enough for groups to run through.

The playful pieces were created with the help of a team of local volunteers, who took the floats away from their usual settings but kept their desired effect of being a part of great fun. Light, soft colors led to an atmosphere of enjoyment with the floats serving as a background rather than overwhelming as loud, “heavy” colors may have.
