The Play House, a multi-purpose aluminum 8x8' cube, is a nomadic version of artist-curator Marianne Bernstein's previous project, The Welcome House (Love Park, 2009). During DesignPhiladelphia 2011, The Play House debuted in the University of the Arts Lot on Broad Street. Twelve artists teams were invited to activate vacant lots throughout Philadelphia and document it through short films. At night, these films were projected onto the exterior of The Play House; during the day, aspiring musicians performed in the cube.

In October 2012, The Play House will travel to New Haven, CT, for an installation commissioned by Artspace in The Lot during City-Wide Open Studios.

The Play House was designed in collaboration with Daryn Edwards of Interface Studio Architects and fabricated by EnMotion Design. Video production by Kevin Francis Farrell and Peter Parker Brodhead.
