The Gandía Kid University was organized around and protects six existing white mulberry trees scattered around a central courtyard. All of the learning activities and workshops take place here – in this central natural setting – with the intention of encouraging creativity among children.
Interior spaces are well-lit and naturally ventilated and they maintain a visual and close spatial connection with the green courtyard. And finally, the low-lying, 1,075 square meter facility is clad in white ceramic tiles that foster a sense of continuity. Combining learning and nature as part of any educational program is A-OK with us and we hope the trend will continue!
