Physical inactivity seen in the kids of Kathmandu is a consequence of a lack of play spaces in the city. My experience as an outdoor enthusiast has shown me that the play value for young children in Nepal has not been addressed well. Pre-adolescence is considered an especially important time for developing gross motor-skills in a child. It is also arguably the most difficult age for a child to remain occupied with an activity.
HAUS sparks creativity in young children in the form of physical activities such as modular playhouse building and bouldering. HAUS is by its design flexible and playful, and addresses the importance of exploring physical movements in variable configurations. HAUS, with its capability to adapt and assist with the child’s growth, hopes to be a part of fond childhood memories and an introduction to the sport of climbing and route settings.
