CARRÉRE & HASTINGS, ARCHITECTS Something elemental is wanting in the design which might easily have been incorporated if it had been studied with sympathetic insight by a designer who had come into actual contact with the life of the neighborhood. A " keep-off-the-grass park," which, notwithstanding its inappropriateness, teaches a great lesson; for a mud-hole has been converted into a work of art at an expenditure only equivalent to what it would have cost to have filled it up. But why was not the work of art based upon the bed-rock of social conditions?
T-SQUARE CLUB COMPETITION-DESIGN FOR A NEIGHBORHOOD PLAYGROUND
BY ANDREW J. SAUER The alley traffic is entirely separated and concealed behind a high brick-wall which helps to support an arbor, beneath which are shaded sand-courts and benches overlooking a large sunken playground. The latter is shortened at both ends in order not to be traversed by diagonal traffic, and thus an air of formality is obtained, and space is provided for isolated underground toilet-rooms.
