Pink Panther

Pink Panther is a distinctive Play Structure at Bard Early College School, Washington D.C. This project invites you to partake in engaging experiences, visual curiosity, and interactivity through its groundbreaking form, bold color scheme, and spatial ambiguity. Crafted with precision, Pink Panther is fabricated from CNC milled foam components intricately connected to an internal steel frame. To ensure both a strong visual impact and long-lasting durability, it is covered with a semi-gloss fiberglass finish. Designed with the public in mind, Pink Panther encourages interaction by providing spaces to gather around, climb into, and discover. Experience the joy and creativity that Pink Panther brings to Bard Early College School – a place where art and play seamlessly converge.
