Brief: The aim of the “Edutrain” challenge is to design a transition/care and learning center for the street kids, which will act as a multidimensional space; as a place of reformation, care, and learning space.
What kind of space design will help bridge the gap between the street and the classroom?
How can the architecture of a reformative space help in the rehabilitation of its users?
How can the use of child-centric design help in creating a sustainable solution to this issue?
The challenge is to address the issue through an innovative architectural thought which will help in generating a space that can be considered as a ‘Transitional Space’ for these children.
Purpose: The center must be approachable to all street children creating a safe, convenient and comfortable environment.
Multi-functional: The spaces must be designed to adapt to various activities in a short while and with less effort. The furniture can be modular, compact, and durable.
Engage: Promote interaction through flexible and child-friendly designs. The material, color palette, and other elements can be used to create an engaging experience for kids.
Economical: The center must be built with fewer resources and investment but create a huge social impact on the site.
Context: The design must respond to the (existing) site conditions. The wider socio-cultural, economic and environmental settings are to be considered in the design approach.
