Sheridan’s Material ConneXion Library Interior Decorating intern, Carla Munemori da Rosa Borges, researched materials suitable for a barrier-free design for children’s play areas. The role of sustainable materials in children’s play and recreation areas and the role of texture are explored. Materials from the Material ConneXion Library have been chosen and their use in inclusive play areas are analyzed for design consideration and use characteristics.
