ARCH 202B: Architectural Design II Gallery: The Materiality of Schools, Sites, and Sheds

Extending Geometries

The project seeks to facilitate and encourage physical activity and creativity in the classroom environment. Studies have determined that a successful
co-mingling of these two factors fosters development in early childhood. By intertwining the geometries of the existing shed’s structural trusses with a rippling circular nature-inspired pattern, the primary programmatic elements of a kindergarten are established. The simultaneity of these systems encourage constant movement through learning spaces while enabling specificity and zones for various classroom activities.
