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

Kindergarten Shed

My kindergarten design transforms the existing shed based on a grid system derived from the shed’s steel structure. It’s a flexible grid that allows for different-sized programs to exist simultaneously within. Additionally, secondary wooden timber members are employed to the new spaces to contrast against the given steel structure of the shed. The resulting structure is one that is very open for fluid interaction between spaces to encourage both children and faculty to build stronger bonds.
