ADAM WIERCIN­SKI BUILDS A SUS­TAIN­ABLE ‘KIDS CITY’

Ekaruna - - News Round Up -

The cre­ative pro­posal by Pol­ish ar­chi­tect Adam Wiercin­ski for a kinder­garten un­like any other has taken the de­sign world by storm. Made from re­cy­cled con­tainer frames and with the de­sign of a small town, the kinder­garten cen­tre has been inspired by an ar­ray of fac­tors, from sus­tain­able con­struc­tion to the child’s imag­i­na­tion. The ‘town’ it­self is to be built across a span of 95 square me­tres of land and is to house 25 chil­dren. The space has taken a num­ber of el­e­ments into con­sid­er­a­tion, like cre­at­ing an aes­thet­i­cally pleas­ing and wel­com­ing space, and in­cor­po­rat­ing ac­ces­si­ble spa­ces and rooms into it. It will con­sist of al­leys and scat­tered houses, with each unit within it con­tain­ing a multi-pur­pose room, toi­lets, chang­ing room, tech­ni­cal room and stor­age space. The de­sign of the units was based upon the way in which chil­dren imag­ine a ‘house’ – with a cot­tage-like ap­pear­ance and slop­ing roof. While it may ap­pear some­what com­pact from the out­side, Wiercin­ski has sub­mit­ted plans that make the most of ev­ery me­tre of space within the com­plex. Kids City also com­prises of an ad­min­is­tra­tive area, kitchen fa­cil­i­ties and an ex­er­cise room.

Part of Wiercin­ski’s vi­sion was to in­cor­po­rate green ar­eas into the out­side spa­ces of the cen­tre, so chil­dren can ex­pe­ri­ence and be ed­u­cated about the very ba­sics of na­ture and ecol­ogy.
