Podgorje TimeShare Kindergarten and School in Slovenia by Arhitektura Jure Kotnik

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Article source: Arhitektura Jure Kotnik 

New TimeShare Kindergarten is located in the central area of small Slovenian village settlement Podgorje. The building is an extension of an existing school and hosts four playrooms and a classroom for first graders. The kindergarten’s special feature is its open plan approach with unified play space, which covers as much as 86% of the entire kindergarten and can be closed off if necessary. Children can move inside the kindergarten without restrictions, according to the so-called timeshare principle. Movement is even encouraged by a series of elements like sliding doors between playrooms, accordion doors of the central common room, and the road meandering between playrooms, which visually connects different spaces and invites children to follow it (walk, run, ride their kick scooter or bike). Even special road signs have been designed, encouraging children to mimic movements of a particular animal (butterfly, crab, lizard, etc.), and go either fast (cheetah) or slow (snail).

Applying Art to Education in Montréal, Canada by Cégep Marie-Victorin

Sunday, February 12th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The team brought the Early Childhood Education department’s mission to life. Children play and laugh in front of a fantasy-inspired decor where the imaginary meets the natural world. Educators are depicted in the form of large watermark silhouettes that nurture the children and help them develop. Large circles dot the corridors; a nod to the importance of movement and relationships within the department. The circles represent the close connection and communication between educator and child and between child and educator.

Kindergarten in Koblenz, Germany by Herrmanns-Architekten

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Article source: Herrmanns-Architekten 

Explanations about the construction of a kindergarten in Lahnstein

The curved building for a new kindergarten is to be erected as a wooden structure with a formwork of vertical wood panels. The intention of the architects is that the new  building is self-consciously integrated into the urban environment.

Especially when building for children, other aspects than usual have to be incorporated into the design process. Who says that a building must inevitably always be designed with the rigid cartesian axes (height / width / depth) as a crate. This is the dynamic structure of the organic building with its curved ground plan for breaking open the rigid geometric shapes.

Children’s land in Umal Nasser village, The Gaza strip by ARCò -architettura e cooperazione and MCA- Mario Cucinella Architects

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Article source: ARCò -architettura e cooperazione

The idea of building the Um al Nasser children’s center “The Children’s Land” in the Gaza Strip started in 2011 as a response to a call from the local Bedouin community to the Vento di Terra NGO, asking for access to quality health and educational services for children and women of their village.

Difficult areas such as the Gaza Strip are characterized by a systematic lack of urban planning. The decision to build a school complex employing  bioclimatic architecture criteria was driven by the need to use readily available and cheap local resources.

Absam Primary School in Austria by Schenker Salvi Weber

Friday, December 23rd, 2016

Article source: Schenker Salvi Weber

All moved in! The extension of the primary school in the Tyrolean municipality of Absam was completed in September 2016. After one-and-a-half years of construction, kids are now frolicking around in the two-story kindergarten. The first sport classes are already taking place in the triple gymnasium, and sweet sounds are floating down from the new music school under the roof of the historic primary school building.

There wasn’t much space for the new building in the 7000-person community of Absam, the “village of the Olympians” in the Hall-Wattens region, just 20 minutes by car from Innsbruck. So the architects Schenker Salvi Weber – the only ones among the 20 competition participants – decided to situate the sports hall underground and, for structural reasons, build the two-story kindergarten atop in a lightweight wood frame construction.

Kindergarten Valdaora di Sotto, South Tyrol in Italy by feld72

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: feld72 

Nestling within the village structure of Valdaora di Sotto in South Tyrol, the kindergarten building communicates the interplay between tradition, contemporary life and nature. The third kindergarten made by feld72 aligns itself within its tranquil background without being subordinate to it. Self-evident and uncontrived. Embedded sensuously in its location, the building responds to the dominant aura of the parish church with the cemetery chapel and the elementary school in the centre of Valdaora di Sotto. The timber building sits as though in an encasement within the massive surrounding wall, lending security.
