NEWTON COMPASS新纽顿 COMPASS

IN PROGRESS

Newton compass is the third project for Newton Kindergarten institution in Suzhou. At beginning, this project was set as a successor from two previous projects, but we decided to go beyond, to become truly creative and being provocative not only as a kindergarten but as an experience, for children who begin their own life journey.

Compass manifests the essence of this project: compass as a guardian of life, compass as an indicator of 360°views, and compass as a finder of children’s potential and possibilities.
Architecturally entire space is organized surrounding a central space, which we call “Compass Mind”. That is simply an empty space and a void to be filled with imagination.

Creativity is not probably something that can be taught nor identified. We believe the power of imagination is the source of creation, we tried to create space which inspires children and drives their imagination.
新纽顿COMPASS是苏州新纽顿幼儿园机构的第三个项目。一开始,这个项目被设定为之前两个项目的继任者,但我们决定超越,成为真正的创造力,不仅作为幼儿园而且作为一种体验,对于开始自己的人生旅程的孩子来说是挑衅。

指南针体现了这个项目的精髓:指南针作为生命的守护者,指南针作为360°视野的指示器,指南针作为儿童潜力和可能性的发现者。

建筑整个空间围绕着一个中央空间,我们称之为“指南针心灵”。这只是一个空洞的空间和充满想象力的空白。

创造力可能不是可以教授或识别的东西。我们相信想象力是创造的源泉,我们努力创造激发孩子灵感并激发他们想象力的空间。
