Elementary schools, as spaces where children experience for their first time an urban space different from that of their home, play an essential role in the formation of children’s personality. Today, the ‘space of education’ is a great concern to modern pedagogy and influences, alongside other facts, the quality of learning.

Now, how can this space break its rigid, spiritless, mold and provide children with dynamic, lively and calm space that can not only encourage their creativity and improve their abilities but also as a public building within the district and the urban façade, turn in to the representative of the form and identity of the city?

Together with other concerns such as the interaction of the schools and the city, the degree of complexity of spatial arrangement and the role of color in creating spaces, this was the main challenge facing the design.
Considering the enormous quantity of educational spaces constructed in Iran, we aimed at developing principles which could be easily extended to similar cases:

  • Creating simple volumes comprehensible to children and avoiding any complexity in spatial arrangement.
  • Using color for representing the form and character of the building in the external façade while creating the sense of serenity and liveliness within.
  • Applying visual transparency where the building meets the city in order to connect the city and the school adding dynamism to the urban façade and avoiding a claustrophobic effect.
