The period of early childhood is one of the most important phases of human life. Similarly, the pre-school stage is one the most sensitive spans of human life and it is also a time when children’s physical, mental, social, emotional, and cognitive developments occur at their fastest pace.
Children, to a large degree, complete their mental and personal development between the ages of 0 and 6 as the characteristics of behavior acquired during this stage continue for the rest of their lives. Pre-school educational institutions are one of the most deterministic social units in the safe and healthy formation of children’s development during this significant stage. On the other hand, pre-school educational institutions also ensure that especially mothers as well as parents are easily able to take part in social life and business life. Ensuring the development of the child, at the same time allows the same degree of insurance for the business and social lives of mothers and fathers.
In order to reach these targets on a countrywide scale Borusan aims to build daily child care facilities called “Borusan Joy Factory” within the scope of “My Mom’s Job is My Future” social responsibility project that has been initiated in collaboration with the Ministry of Family and Social Policies and the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology.
Borusan has undertaken the construction project of the ten Borusan Joy Factories which will be built over the span of the next four years in Organized Industrial Zones (OIZ) of various cities across Turkey. In collaboration with Yapı-Endüstri Merkezi, Borusan launched the ‘National Architectural Design Competition for Daily Child Care Facilities in Organized Industrial Zones’ in an attempt to attain architectural designs for the construction of the mentioned Borusan Joy Factories.
PURPOSE OF THE COMPETITION
While creating the architectural design for the ‘National Architectural Design Competition for Daily Child Care Facilities in Organized Industrial Zones'; the competition targets to develop individual’s cultural, artistic, scientific, and natural values. Moreover, the competition aims to create qualitative, original, functional, economic, and innovative solutions that can be used in the long term and to create an atmosphere for promotion of fine arts as a field.
DESCRIPTION OF THE COMPETITION
Borusan in collaboration with the Ministry of Family and Social Policies and the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology commits to build ten daily child care facilities for 0 to 6 year old children under the title of ‘Borusan Joy Factories’ in Organized Industrial Zones (OIZ) of various cities across Turkey. The Adıyaman Organized Industrial Zone has been chosen as the pilot area for the project.
The objective of the competition is to create a model for the architectural design of daily child care facilities with capacities ranging from 75 to 150 children between ages of 0 and 6 to be constructed in different regions of Turkey. This architectural model is to be initially developed to be put into implementation at the site designated by the Adıyaman OIZ which has been chosen as the pilot location for the project.
