Jeg har tegnet et bud på 8 gruppers daginstitution med fokus på skabe et indre landskab der understøtter læring og taler til barnets fantasi.

 

Med afsæt i studier om rum og børns adfærd, gældende læringsteori og kvalitet i daginstitutioner, har jeg forsøgt at givet et bud på, hvorledes vi kan forlade den traditionelle ”one fits all” tilgang og i stedet prøve at nytænke måden hvorpå vi organisere og programmere daginstitutioner.

Udfordringen ligger blandt andet i at alt for mange kvadratmeter ligger ubenyttet hen i størstedelen af dagen, hvilket resulterer i, at den rumlige tæthed ude på stuerne når så kritisk et niveau, at det påvirker børnenes adfærd og læring negativt.

Målet med mit projekt er at udfordre, om det er muligt at skaffe børn markant bedre fysiske forhold i fremtidens daginstitutioner uden at bygge større og øge kommunernes byggeomkostninger. Kan simpel reorganisering og nytænkning af måden, hvorpå vi fordeler daginstitutionernes kvadratmeter forbedre rummenes evne til at understøtte læring?

Med en baggrund i den pædagogiske faglighed og en fremtid i den arkitektoniske har jeg med dette projekt forsøgt at favne begge fagligheder og skabe bro.

My project is a day care center for eight groups of children age 0-6. The focus of my project was to create an interior landscape that supports learning and speaks to the imagination of the child.

Based on studies on space and behaviour, current learning theory and rapports on quality in day care, I have tried to leave the traditional “one fits all” approach behind and rethink the way that we program and design day care today.

The challenge is among others that fare to may square meters go unused throughout the majority of the day, which results in that the spatial density in the group rooms reach a critical level, that effects the children’s behaviour and learning adversely.

The goal of my project was to challenge if it was possible to precure children significantly better physical conditions in future day care without building bigger and increasing the building cost of the municipality’s. Can simple reorganisation and distribution of the square meters improve the rooms ability to support learning?

With a professional background in early childhood learning and a future in architecture, this project is my attempt to build a bridge between to professions.
