Ponzano Children Il Centro Infanzia Il progetto architettonico

The architectural design

All of the different spaces are connected. The density of their volumes, the relationship between full and empty areas outdoor and indoor, generate, in all their interconnections, a certain balance and harmony that make the environment meaningful.

Ponzano Children Il Centro Infanzia L'ambiente educativo

The educational environment

Our environment welcomes and supports the children’s explorations, valuing the hundred languages with which they explore and approach reality. In order to do this, the environment needs to be rich, diversified and flexible.

Ponzano Children Il Centro Infanzia Oblò, sguardi sullo spazio

Oblò, observing the space

A new environment is always a discovery, an area where relationships and encounters take place, an opportunity to see the world from different perspectives. Our first encounter with this environment triggered an intense reaction, as well as the desire to get to know it, live it and interpret it. A small publication with three holes on the cover recounts the first meeting between the children and the Early Childhood Centre’s architectural space.

Share the children’s experiences

“A round box that is open to the sky like a secret garden,
which attracts and draws the air inside it.”
