From the architect. LEARNING BY PLAYING

The project consists of a one story building at street level.

The site is influenced by two conditions that have been key aspects in the development of the project. In the first place the closeness to a highspeed traffic way, in Pio Baroja Avenue, and in the second place the remarkable height of the surrounding buildings. This took us to create a building focused on its inner court.

The floor plan of the building is split into three different volumes

Main issues developed in the project:

Double circulation: interior/exterior, taking advantage of the local climatology, going around the school playing

Good orientation aswell as cross ventilation in all rooms, which implies important energy savings.

Flexibility in the rooms in terms of mobile walls joining in packs of three units.

Constructive simplicity

Pio Baroja Nursery in Valencia, Spain is a daring one story building design... http://t.co/0AFg37FG

This is a common problem with photographing schools and kindergartens. Nowadays the rules about publishing pictures of children are very strict, and getting a release from the parent of every kid that ended up in the pictures is usually simply too much trouble for the photographer.

The building itself: looks a bit too much like a blast of brutalism from the past. I guess grey concrete works better in the bright light of Spain. I'm writing this in Finland, and there's a 1960s brutalist, grey concrete kindergarten being demolished in the next block from my apartment. I don't have kids, but I'm still glad that the thing will be gone soon.

There are no children in these photos, so it's very hard to get any idea of what kind of building or how successful this is.
