Experiences of accessible playgrounds in paediatric health care settings and their design implications


Dr. Ron Buliung
Dr. Tim Ross


I am a researcher in the fields of urban planning and architecture. I am enthusiastic about the subject of health-promoting cities for children with disabilities. I seek to find innovative approaches towards making cities more accessible to disabled children. I have expertise in the design of playgrounds, and my Ph.D. project focuses on the design of inclusive playgrounds.
I am also interested in the relationship between Nature, Architecture, and Urban Design. I have experience in biophilic design for children. In addition, sustainable transportation in cities, especially active transportation (Walking and Cycling), and the different ways to improve this phenomenon in city campuses are among my other research interests.
