A public building should be able to not have doors. We think of these buildings as technical fragments from the connected public space network throughout the city thatcher in their belonging to the nature of the streets, squares and gardens. From this discussion we propose that the Daycare Center become a transit device and reconcile the city and the abandoned park where it is situated, conceiving it as a place to play and to be for neighbors and children.

The nursery bends and turns to meet the plunged plane of the park eight feet below the road, establishing a relationship of maximum transparency and complementarity with the degraded park inducing its recovery. This notion of nexus that joins different links of the public spaces suggests slow transitions between public spaces and the building interior, by inserting two cushion-spaces that allow a paused access through the north ramp and the deep south porch. We dilute the boundary between the inside of the nursery and the outside of it and we reconcile the public and the private space.
