Isamu Noguchi; a Japanese and American sculptor who had introduced visionary playground designs which where rarely known at his art practice. Noguchi was far beyond from his time and created a special landscaping architectural intellection. Functionally and utility were his main focus of his art vision. Moreover, he used his sculpture language designing playground in public areas which to contribute and to communicate with society. By creating these new type of landscapes, he aimed to question the natüre of art and design. Furthermore, he went far beyond of aesthetics of sculpture art and he pointed how to discover art in a new aspect. Noguchi was able build landscapes and playground without foziness and that led him to make sculptury landscapes. The playgrounds that he designed were helped him to formalize public areas and design sculpture for cities. Nonetheless, the playgrounds supported art to communicate with daily life routines. Creating a new public space model by expanding the expression possibilities of the sculpture allows art to communicate with society in a new kind of socio-cultural and spatial context.
