Innovative Design for a Playground Slide

There is an artistic playground designed by Isamu Yoguchi in Atlanta GA that was constructed in the 1970s.  It was recently renovated with money provided by the Herman Miller Foundation.  Yoguchi’s design for a playground slide is quite innovative.

I thought of possible permutations:  (1) replacing the metal slides with colored plastic ones and (2) using a stock water trough for the slide launch.
