Overview

Kindergartens, Schools and Playgrounds by Ana Canizares

Human development during childhood and adolescence is particularly important, and the quality of the spaces where it takes place can be highly influential in a delicate process. Numerous studies explore the effects of architecture on children's behavior and have their effect on the design of educational establishments. This book gathers a selection of schools and nurseries that aim to create imaginative and evocative atmospheres. 30 projects are included, many of them also serving as meeting places for the local community. Another important aspect is environmental 'intelligence', with energy saving systems, passive house standards and light optimization all factors that come into play. From the astronomy 'classroom of the future' in west London to a bubble-structured nursery in Japan, the forward-thinking projects herein are well presented with clear text, plans and photos.
