Claude Ponti has created a permanent playground for children.
The Dépodépo is a backyard with a shed containing a gardener’s tools, “odds and ends” and empty flower pots. However, this backyard belongs to a giant, and children find themselves surrounded by much bigger objects than usual, where flower pots become shacks and gazebos. This play space offers a range of activities where a child’s curiosity and imagination can roam freely.
Spread throughout the park are other creations by Claude Ponti.
