How can young children play an active role in developing the design of learning environments? What methods can be used to bring together children’s and practitioners’ views about their environment? What insights can young children offer into good designs for these children’s spaces? With the expansion of early childhood education and the move to 'extended schools', more young children will spend more time than ever before in institutions. Based on two actual building projects, this book is the first of its kind to demonstrate the possibilities of including young children’s perspectives in the design and review of children’s spaces. Situated at the heart of the debate about the relationship between the built environment and its impact on children’s learning and wellbeing, Transforming Children’s Spaces provides insights into how young children see their environment discusses children’s aspirations for future spaces develops the 'Mosaic approach' , pioneered by the author, as a method for listening to young children and adults Emphasising the importance of visual and verbal methods of communication, this fascinating book demonstrates how practitioners and young children can articulate their perspectives, and shows how participatory methods can support new relationships between children, practitioners and architects. This book is essential reading for those who work in children's spaces and for those who design them as well as being of general interest to those studying education and childhood studies.

Seit langer Zeit stellen Schulbauten ein großes Aufgabengebiet für die Architektur dar und es gibt ein nachhaltiges Interesse an dieser Bauaufgabe. Diese Publikation erläutert in elf Kapiteln zentrale Parameter für diesen Bautyp: die Rolle der Schule für Gemeinde oder Stadtviertel, Fragen der Nachhaltigkeit, flexible Räume zum Lernen, geeignete Möblierung, Partizipationsprozesse im Entwurf, Lernen außerhalb des Klassenzimmers, Außenraumgestaltung, Chancen und Anforderungen der inklusiven Beschulung, die Rolle neuer pädagogischer Konzepte. Jedes Thema wird ausführlich beleuchtet und mit zahlreichen gebauten Beispielen illustriert. Bei diesen geht es nicht um eine komplette Gebäudedokumentation, sondern um die Darstellung einer vorbildlichen Lösung für den jeweiligen Aspekt. Neben internationalen Beispielen werden ebenso wegweisende Projekte aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum dokumentiert, darunter die Carl-Bolle-Grundschule in Berlin (Die Baupiloten), der Postfossile „Ecowoodbox“ Kindergarten in Hannover (Despang Architekten) oder das Dänische Gymnasium A. P. Møller-Skolen in Schleswig (Arkitektfirmaet C. F. Møller).

How can architectural form respond to the unique needs of children and support and reinforce the pedagogy of a children's centre? So much of the teaching in Early Learning revolves around the importance of a child's environment on their development. Over the last 100 years, many divergent philosophies have evolved with a wide breadth and depth of thinking and with an equally wide range of architectural responses. Children are a unique client with heightened sensory needs, special scale considerations and a totally different way of moving through and perceiving space to adults. The different educational programs and the consequent needs of the staff also impact on the architectural outcome and on how children's needs are managed.

The intersection of architecture and education is a new and burgeoning area of interest. This book blends architectural design information with theory-based content explaining the foundations of early childhood environments. Colorful photographs of intentionally designed spaces will inspire early childhood professionals and architects alike as they dream, plan, build, and revamp settings. Inspired by the groundbreaking architectural book A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction (Oxford University Press, 1977), this resource aims to glean architectural information regarding important design patterns in an environment and utilize them to provide insight into early childhood environments that are both developmentally appropriate and aesthetically pleasing.

Überarbeitete Neuausgabe des erfolgreichen Handbuchs zum Schulbau Seit jeher stellen Bauten für Kinder und Jugendliche ein großes Aufgabengebiet für die Architektur dar. Veränderte pädagogische Konzepte – wie Gruppenarbeit, fachübergreifende Projektorientierung und Inklusion – erfordern neue räumliche Gegebenheiten. Das Buch stellt in einem systematischen Teil die verschiedenen Schultypen und ihre Spezifika und somit die Rahmenbedingungen für den Kindergarten- und Schulbau dar. Neue Unterrichtsformen, aber auch die elektronische Vernetzung und Kommunikationstechnik werden als wichtige Elemente der Projektplanung behandelt. Der Projektteil stellt 70 realisierte Projekte vor allem aus Europa, Nordamerika, Australien und Fernost dar. Im Vordergrund der Analyse stehen konzeptionelle Aspekte wie Gebäudezonierungen, städtebauliche Integration, Erschließung, Pausenbereiche und das Eingehen auf soziale Gegebenheiten. Für die Neuausgabe wurden sechs neue wegweisende Projekte ausgewählt, darunter die Grundschule Niederheide bei Berlin, die erste Plusenergieschule Deutschlands, das Bildungszentrum „Tor zur Welt“, eines der Schlüsselprojekte der IBA 2013 in Hamburg, sowie die Kita "Sinneswandel" in Berlin, die vor allem gehörlose Kinder fördert. .

As the authors state in their opening chapter, prepare to be amazed. This beautiful book describes the revolution that the Reggio Emiliaatelier (art studio) brought to the education of young children in Italy, and follows that revolution across the ocean to North America. It explores how the experiences of children interacting with rich materials in the atelier affect an entire school's approach to the construction and expression of thought and learning. Lavishly illustrated in full color, this original volume: includes detailed interviews with Italian educators from Reggio Emilia; offers a window into many ateliers within the United States, examining the multiple ways that experience is altered when teachers, parents, and children prepare and work together in the studio setting; addresses the practical aspects of the atelier, including organizing the environment, using materials, and provides examples of projects; and features a comprehensive approach that addresses many varied issues related to children, including learning, collaboration, relationships, and community.
