School for Empathy

Daisy Ames
Given the diverse demographic of the Lower East Side community, the School for Empathy is a new educational typology to break the cultural, language, and social barriers through a sensorial learning process. When the curve interweaves with the existing building, it injects fluidity to accommodate a child’s ingenuity, and defines spatiality with intentional program. The education of empathy will be implemented through these sensorial spaces to achieve the goal of cultural exchange, recognition of identity, and imaginative expression.
