Arch roberts refan play design strategy

Childcare as a tool for Justice

The project attempts to create an architecture that provides residence care, embraces their abilities, acknowledges their differences, and this is by providing job opportunities, affordable housing options, and childcare facilities. It addresses central questions that resonate in fundamental ways with life in the city today: “How can architecture offer access for a healthful and equal lifestyle considering children, working parents, and care workers?” And “How can architecture organize different scales of community engagement over different demographics?” Besides, nature is by far the best learning ground for children; It was essential to consciously bring in some of its intriguing aspects into the childcare facility’s design thinking; to encourage children to move in countless ways. That may be one of the most fundamental methods in fully exploring their physical and cognitive abilities.
