We really love educational architecture that creates a dynamic learning environment, and this bodacious Dandelion Clock kindergarten in Germany is an excellent example of just that. The brainchild of Ecker Architekten, the modular school design establishes a unique identity for mentally and physically handicapped children without sacrificing a sense of color and play. Plus, it's a daylit haven that permits outdoor play any time of the year.
This beautiful kindergarten is located in Buchen, Germany
Specifically for mentally and physically handicapped children, it retains a sense of color and play
Repetitive framing allowed for modular construction
Four modules are arranged around a central atrium
The central atrium trebles as a play space, dining hall and traffic regulator
Overhangs mitigate excess solar gain
Roof monitors create a distinctive identity
The roof monitors also contain vents and windows that circulate natural cooling throughout the facility
This is such a thoughtful and inspiring design and we absolutely love it.
