Palle Nielsen reboots ‘Model for a Qualitative Society’

Back in the 1968, Palle Nielsen created a play happening in Stockholm’s Moderna Museet. There had never been a play space quite like it and it’s debatable if there’s ever been once since.

Nielsen got up to some recent public play at the 2013 edition of Paris’ Nuit Blanche.


For more photos and background on Model for a Qualitative Society visit Architektur für Kinder. A more detailed and authoritative interpretation of the 1968 Stockholm event is available in Lars Bang Larsen’s essay, The Mass Utopia of Art Activism: Palle Nielsen’s The Model – A Model for the Qualitative Society

Palle, how about coming over to Canada’s Ocean Playground to work with us in putting together a creative public space for play. We have our own version of Nuit Blanche too – Nocturne.
