The terms "public toilet" and "seaside periscope" don't usually go hand in hand. However, Adam Wiercinski has drawn inspiration from the location of his project in Gdynia, Poland, on the coast of the Baltic Sea to create a concept for a building that both mimics and observes. Choosing to focus on extensive views over the sea front, Wiercinski aimed to imbue users with a sense of tranquility by designing a serene public facility embodying the powerful, elemental nature of the sea.
With the concept of being a small town in the city, the ‘Kids' City’ - Modular Kindergarten proposal by Adam Wiercinski consists of a different approach to the everyday world of the child. The main idea was to create a welcoming and safe space, which becomes a part of an interesting architecture by functioning in the city. With a floor area of 95 square meters for 25 children, the basic module of the whole structure is designed as a single branch. More images and architects’ description after the break.
