In the trend of educational innovation and integration with the world and the region today, the “one-way education – teachers speak, listen students” approach is no longer appropriate. The current need for advanced education raises a holistic education problem both physically and intellectually. Along with that, the concept of education sitting in the previous classroom is no longer appropriate. Instead, the learning environment is extended from the classroom to the corridor to the school yard and every corner of the school space. The development of student development is done not only confined to learning culture in the regular classroom but also through many other diverse activities such as communication, play, exploration, and experience.

Some schools, especially international ones, have updated with new educational methods such as Montesory – emphasizing the learning from interactive, student-centered learning that has successfully implemented the orientation of training. create this. However, with the new, comprehensive, training-oriented needs, there are also requirements for innovation in school space organization design.

As a preliminary assessment, urban schools across the country currently have many constraints on organizing play spaces and physical education for students, especially in large cities. Stemming for many objective and subjective reasons, especially the limited area – terrain of construction land in urban areas, as well as the design solutions to organize the rigid, dry school space. Many schools across the country (including newly constructed schools) still have restrictions on the organization of play spaces and physical education for students.

Talking with Architects Trinh Trung Hieu and Architects Dinh Van Thanh – Chairing the architecture and idea design, the design team of the Preschool project at D25 Hanoi plot – Sunjn Vietnam Joint Venture Company: “The design organization of play spaces and physical education in the works to ensure the education of students in accordance with standards and approach to advanced educational methods, schools should include 02 complete Critical spaces for “standard” education and physical activity include: indoor and outdoor physical activity areas.

Highly changing spaces stimulate children’s movement

Curves are one of the most favorite types of children, if they are old enough, they will run all day without getting bored.

The land plots planned to invest in the construction of schools in the inner cities of the cities have very limited area sizes, construction density, land use coefficients and upper floors, and the shape of the land lots in many schools. If there is a distortion and there are many disadvantages, the synchronous organization and optimization of this space, besides ensuring other functional, academic, administrative and auxiliary areas, is always a challenge to be achieved in the future. project design. New and breakthrough solutions are needed to well solve this problem ”.

Bringing play space to different heights makes it more accessible, more attractive, reduces construction density, and increases the play area.

In the case of the D25 Preschool project in Cau Giay District, Hanoi, which the group has implemented and is under construction, due to the distorted terrain with 3 sides covered by high-rise buildings, The design has arranged the central building block with classrooms and auxiliary administrative functions … to ensure standards of lighting, microclimate organization, safety for teaching and learning.

Layout plan and concept of the function of the motor tower with the overall function of the school

Facing the requirements of increasing and synchronously organizing the play space and physical education for students, the Kts and design engineers have experienced the additional solution “The structured movement tower spiral, narrowing at the top with a top canopy and natural greenery in the middle core, are connected to the bridge corridor connected to the classroom block. On the one hand, in terms of architectural aesthetics, the spiral spiral building block helps the overall architecture of the whole school be dynamic and attractive.

The location of the land is very unfavorable, not square and fully shielded by tall buildings

On the other hand, more importantly, the 50m-long, spacious, airy corridors have the right slope (similar to organizing the visiting slopes for display at the museum – satisfactory for moving freely without practice). (safety and observation center), has a balcony to ensure safety, is organized vertically and functions as a walkway outside the house, but also acts as a space for exchanges – activities Covered physical activity for students.

The above-mentioned design solution has helped to increase approximately 3 times the area of ​​covered physical activity space for the school, but also creates a very attractive interaction-physical interaction space. because of its continuity and vertical space change, it is full of improvisation and interesting.

The spiral “motorized tower” building blocks the overall architecture of the school

Along with quality material improvement solutions (such as the construction of young rubber mats for floors and walkways with bright colors to ensure safety for children, it is also suitable for the discovery of colors. colors of children), decorated with trees and some equipment – accessories, “Mobile tower” is an effective design solution to increase time and form of diverse movements on demand. explore and expand the worldview, interact and interact with your friends. This can be seen as a new design experience for organizing the play space and physical education for students in urban school buildings./.

The dynamic space of exploration and interaction is full of fun and safety

Decorating with trees and equipment makes the space “Tower of movement” more and more attractive to preschool students.
