Pakistan's installation, ‘Daalaan,’ was a collaboratively designed abstract 'playground' that broke down social barriers and invited interaction between strangers.

Taking the simplicities of our childhoods as a reference, the Pakistani team created a playroom ‘where imagination has no bounds’, to encourage people to meet through play and transported them back to a time when they were unhindered by adult anxieties. They hoped their playful installation - which featured sheesham wood objects, Lattoo Stools (spinning tops), hand-drawn artworks and screen prints made using natural henna dyes -  encouraged people to converse and share ideas with open minds.
