With the main objective of creating a model for the architectural design of daily child care facilities in Turkey, the 'Child-Play-Learning-Space-Environment' concept by ddrlp consists of creative components for a building while being formed by multiple relations. Ranging from 75 to 150 children between ages of 0 and 6, the main form generators of their design included social interaction spaces: individually, by group, for crowded uses, the relationship with sun, sky and seasonal-natural cycle, and the sensual interaction with light, colour, texture, material, shape and structural components.

Additional formatives for the architects design of the program and space include age group-scale relations, architectural components as play & interaction generator, environment  as a perceptual trigger and its components, and topography, play, garden usage for notions such as: child-journey-sensual and cognitive growth. Contextual formatives included exurban/ campus settlement, transportation-service-journey, and organized industrial site: factory, storage, etc.  Natural and artificial topography which is shaped by building typologies was also considered.

Institutional formatives include seeking for a sample model concerning a social responsibility project, as well as a common, adaptable structural model which repeats in 10 different city. The adaptable model includes topography/ adaptability to slope, site settlement- adaptability to approaching, adaptability to direction, and adaptability to number of student.
