School of Exploration

Educational buildings nowadays no longer only serve as a place to attend school and study, but as a spot to memorize and acquire inspiration. This project explores a potential methodology to transition the outdated learning environments by activating volumetric space and introducing new geometries. The proposal started from inserting new boxes into the regular and highly accessible spaces, resulting in more explorative space. With these new massings, students are motivated to continuously explore their school. Thus, architecture becomes a means to inspire their creativity and imagination. By combining learning space and playing, the school aims to give students a carefree childhood and aid in cultivating their great personalities.
