The project lends itself to the idea of ‘Playscape’, where nature intertwines with the artificial world. Along with childcare, this project aims to respond to the care for our environment. The overlapping of gardens, affordable housing, and the childcare center create an emerging excessive interior environment. Artificial environments are created inside to reproduce, improve, process, extract, and intensify environments. It also creates a safe atmosphere and environmentally friendly climate for children. Overall, the ambiguity of inside/outside, the coexistence of living and nonliving, the lushness of the new artificial environment, and the existing green space encourage children to play and learn. These multisensory microclimates resonate with architectural form, materials, and textures as tools for education and physical development. Playscape hopes to transcend liveliness that is not just organic but begins to bring in the liveliness of the adjacent city and mix it into a new urban potential.
