Combining school construction with learning kids about it in new ways
Text and drawing by Frits Ahlefeldt
Home today with my daughter, giving her a break from the long 08-16 day in the school system, the kids in Denmark often face. We’ve been painting and cutting paper figures, just letting the short winter day pass by. Spend the rest of the day and the evening finishing up the drawings from the last days on how to construct school buildings together with the kids
Did this drawing later to compare the two worlds of architectural construction and kids playing. One of the trends in modern school construction is to combine the world outside and the world inside the school much more,. opening the closed walls between the educational system and the construction work on the other side, to make it more like open interactive membrane that can be used for teaching kids about how buildings are constructed, as it happens.
