We were given the central space in the Sunshine Coast TAFE to create our sculptural effect, our playground was located in the ground between three buildings. Having the seaward opening to work with and a fairly moderate budget, we suggested a suite of Coreten steel crabs that would weather over years and blend in with the ground and planting scheme. Our steel crabs  seemingly had under a kilometer to travel to get to school.Starting with a paper cut version of a crab, we partnered with our engineers and our fabricators to evolve seven identical units that were deliverable within the budget, next we created the footings and then the scaled metal model to present to the architect, the project manager and the client.
