Junk Playgrounds

I have been looking at "Junk Playgrounds" which sprung up after the war in London on bombed out building sites. The idea that these were playgrounds the children created themselves and they had the freedom to use the junk to build their own worlds really inspires me. I think it might provide a really interesting contrast to the playgrounds that have been designed by adults for children as in comparison the play experienced is often more forced...? I'm thinking this is probably going to be a good route to go down for my dissertation as it isn't too psychological but still has scope for me to look at the psychology of play a bit.
