Kindergartens are the basis forindividual education. The space for preparatory education is the happy worldfor children. It is possible for children to spend their childhood in a healthyand happy way in this kind of space so that they can learn knowledge and touchthe collective life from childhood. It is hoped by us that children can gainknowledge and even lay a foundation for dreams to inspire fantasy at the firststop of children's learning.
The kindergarten is located in YaoDa Tian Xi, Huangyan District, Taizhou city. It serves the residents of thesurrounding community. The architectural style is subject to the overall designcontrol of the community. This kind of kindergarten has appeared in the rapiddevelopment of real estate in China in the past ten years. It also brings abouta problem that there are full of functional buildings which fail to inspire thefantasy of children. "Modern buildings are always focused on rationalityexcessively, which can lose the pleasure brought by mystery andcuriosity." said by a master architect called Ricardo Legorreta once.
The original building is composedof a main building and an auxiliary building. It is similar with residentialbuildings in terms of color. It is hoped by us that the building itself caninspire the fantasy and freedom consciousness of children. The building failsto be adjusted greatly on the whole, so the emotional hint of the wholebuilding is completed through the envisaged action of "plug-in". Theentity attribute is blurred by the new plug-in language through the dominantcolor so as to make children experience the building itself and prompt thelocation of kindergarten in the street at the same time.
The reorganization of internalspace brings some new opportunities to us. We continue using the action of"plug-in" to complete the expression of space atmosphere. In ouropinion, the most important thing is to stimulate the imagination of childrenand provide a free space for them in terms of children's space. Fortunately, itis found by us that children like experiencing the happiness brought by spaceagain and again.In order to achieve this goal, wealso design a space only suitable for children instead of parents in eachclassroom. There is a trampoline area in the hall of the first floor, whichbecomes a space full of challenges and curiosity. In addition, a vertical housethroughout the second floor and the third floor is inserted, so that childrencan jump around, run back and forth and play freely here.
Various contradictory factorsbetween the building and the external environment are harmonized by color as amedium. We design an orange box to stimulate the imagination of the whole spacebelonging to the free space of children in the high hall of the first floor.Outside, we separate and liberate the form and material of the originalbuilding through color. Inside, we integrate it with the outside world throughthe simplest form and color.
