Kindergarten in Rome – 29 Jun 2013
Design: Archiplus
Kindergarten Rome by Archiplus

It has always been a problem for the adult architect to design for children. A very basic one; since it’s virtually impossible for the adult to wear such tiny shoes once more and re-imagine the needs and the states of mind worn by children of early age (1-3 years in the case of this Kindergarten). With such task at hand, we came up with an assortment of ideas built around (or under) one overlying concept; that of having the necessary spaces being covered by a large suspended ‘shell’.

With the complexity given by the introduction of a Contemporary Art Gallery in an ancient mixed industrial building, the project is an opportunity to transgress an univalent attitude of an integration into a historical context. Moreover the Roman historical context is a challenge for this type of intervention. Inserted into the complexity of an ancient industrial estate and confronted to a historical patrimony, our project is resonating to the existing static condition of the site with dynamism, movement and evidence.
