The city of Providence Rhode Island has proposed to design a new
kindergarten school to better enhance the learning of the students
at their most influential age.
The school’s geometry derives from seven different volumes, each having a different function. These volumes are then brought together, wrapped and twisted around each other, in order to form one building mass. Even after being merged together however, the seven different volumes remain apparently independant inside and outside the building creating a clear path of curculation when moving from one function to the next.
“The intellectual growth of Kindergarten students comes from exploration, testing and investigating rather than only from listening.”
The geometries of the individual volumes also focus the children’s views on outdoor vignettes while teaching them the concept of space as they move through the building.
