Loft, 2001 - Architecture - 190 pages
Because the sensory stimuli a child receives from the environment are vital to the child's development many studies have been carried out to determine the effects of architecture on the behavior of young children. Kindergarten Architecture presents 22 preschools from around the world, all of which strive to be ideal: safe places where there are no toxic substances or accessible electrical installations; peaceful places where materials absorb noise; bright places with swings and water. The book takes a close look at technological and ecological installations such as solar panels, tanks for rainwater collection and the recycling of materials.
