Our City Our Playground is an exploration of play, a study of parkour and movement, and an examination of their relationships with architecture in our increasingly urban world.

The lead author is Caitlin Pontrella, an assistant architect at the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation.  She graduated from Syracuse University with her Bachelor of Architecture in 2012.  Directly following, she co-founded The Movement Creative, an organization focused on bringing natural movement and parkour into the city school system and out to the public.
