“I had done some other large RISA models. I said, ‘Yeah, I can throw that together, it wouldn’t take me too much time.’ They (my partners) saw the level of complexity in the model and were excited and wanted me to run with it.”

The Ridge Hill Playground Structure is a 33-ft tall x18-ft wide bronze and steel structure that is made to look like a girl sitting down. The legs of the “girl” extend from a lattice type base and the arms are slides. Bronze was used for plates, tubes and castings and comprised all of the visual structural members. There was an interior stainless steel skeleton supporting the structure.
