Many of our childhood memories are filled with playing, and playgrounds are a big part of this recollection. Wind blowing through one's hair while on a swing, the sudden rush of excitement going down a slide, bumps and bruises, friends and foes.

The rapid urbanization of Asia is spurring the growth of play spaces where children and communities can experience, learn, and reimagine urban life.

This series, shot in Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and China, examines the playgrounds' impact on the communities they are built for and reflect on the urban environments they exist in.
