As the kindergarten is located in an open field at the north suburb of Shanghai, this time we choose an unitary and powerful solid standing in the pure situation, different from the strategy to give a couple of detached units we used to.
Different levels of floors make this building dynamic, which also create the interesting cave space for the outdoor activities where the level changes, arranging the courtyards vertically instead of the traditional horizontal pattern, with the courtyards and children’s activities as the part of the façade.
The alternation of different levels also vivifies the interior space. The atrium with the ramp as the main traffic connection provides a special experience beyond the daily life, exciting, interesting, novel, creating a brilliant kindergarten full of imagination.
The ambiguity of the space provides the more possibilities to the use of kindergarten.
