Located on a removed site surrounded by trees and perched at the edge of a massive hill, this project was designed largely as a kindergarten with some early learning spaces. Tasks on this project included the role of project designer. Focus on access to the outdoors was critical as many underprivileged children attended the program. Predesign included the study of several options and even more variations of those explored through 3D printing and hand drawing. The final scheme was resolved as a composition of three horizontal boxes with the center box containing an illuminated, open-air centerpiece of perforated metal, turning the rooftop mechanical area into a main, experiential feature.
