A realized design for an Early Childhood Learning Center. My design was chosen from 60 other designs in a studio-wide competition. The past summer I traveled with 20 other students as part of CUSD (Cornell University Sustainable Design) to construct the school. The school is located in Cosmo City and includes 4 classrooms for 80 students and a teacher training center.
The Armadillo Crèche embraces the necessity of a fence or wall for protection. Similar to an armadillo, the building curls in on itself , with a harder exterior and a more permeable under-belly. Located at the center of the creche are more communal programs such as dining and gathering.
Below are some design documents produced in the studio and some photos of the completed creche.
