From July 7 to August 12, Carriageworks presents Like Child’s Play byis inspired by the German theorist Friedrich Fröbel, who laid the modern-day foundations for the education of children – perhaps most famously through the use of wooden block toys. Using more than 100 blocks, arches, triangles and pediments that have been amplified in size, Buren upends Fröbel’s work by shifting the focus from toys we towered over as children, to structures that loom over us as adults.
