Académie Lafayette Playground
Académie Lafayette Playground is a KEM Studio-designed playspace for students which features a slide manufactured and donated by Zahner. Académie Lafayette is a French immersion public school operating on multiple campuses in Kansas City serving grades K-8.
To maximize the school’s budget, the forms of the playground were designed to be easily built by volunteers and found/recycled objects + donations were utilized (phase one). Through fundraising and a successful crowdfunding campaign the slide/tunnel/climbing wall was completed as a second phase in Fall 2013.
