Words on the Street

Just in time for the first day of school, Roslindale Wants to Play recently completed a custom installation that will provide children at a Boston Public Schools bus stop with an opportunity for creative play while they wait for their bus to arrive. We developed this project, named Words on the Street, as part of the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics’ Play around the City initiative. By spinning three colorful wheels, students will be prompted with an adjective, a verb, and a noun. Putting the three words together will provide the children with a starting point for imaginative play. They may find themselves pretending to be a clever texting robot, a nervous dancing ostrich, a brave singing dinosaur, or any one of hundreds of other combinations. Words on the Street is located on Archdale Road at the corner of Washington Street, a busy bus stop serving several different BPS bus routes. See below for pictures of the finished installation and our fabrication process.
