    The Design and Environmental Analysis faculty at Cornell University does some amazing research into the design of the physical environment and its effects on development and behavior. Professor Gary Evans has done a lot of research on playgrounds and child development in particular. I would be happy to contact him, should anyone be interested in learning more. There may also be opportunities for collaboration with graduate students within the faculty etc…

    Gary Evans is a really interesting fellow and agree there is fantastic research out there!
