ARCH 418: Architectural Design VII (Global Studio), Fall 2019
Eleni Katsoufi, Studio Instructor
The proposed Daycare Center in Aegina town prepares preschoolers for both Kindergarten and their lives beyond. The design process studied how a building can adapt to and can address the scale of a young child, and how built components can be used differently by adults and by children. The intention was to create a place that can empower children by allowing them more control over spaces and by encouraging them to explore. Utilizing varied components, scales and levels, the building provides children with an environment they can take ownership of, while providing instructors the tools to guide children through various social situations.
