Pawtucket Day Nursery
This addition was generated from the idea of tumbling blocks and the energy of the primary inhabitants of the space – children. The interaction between new and existing construction is energized through the use of familiar textures renewed through alternative building materials and skewed geometries.
These interlocking geometries stimulate conflict and contrast, harmony and comfort – creting distinction between the new expression and existing structure while remaining readable as a whole. Designing with these parameters in mind a conceptual translation was developed corresponding to the energy, enthusiam, playfulness and logic existing in the creative minds of children.
