Following up the wide interest in the wake of Takaharu Tezukas TEDtalk "The best kindergarten you've ever seen" which is among the ten most popular TEDtalks of 2015, this monograph is conceived as the first text-focused publication on Tezuka Architects and provides further introduction to the design philosophy behind the studio's built work. Envisioned as a "pocket guide" in scale and feel, Tezuka Architects: Yellow Book primarily focuses on the lecture "Beyond Architecture" which Takaharu Tezuka gave in October of 2013 at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design (GSD). Introducing Tezuka Architects seminal projects spanning the past 12 years, Takaharu explores a trajectory from the Roof House in (2001) up through the recently completed Child Chemo House in (2013). Touching on the theme of "Nostalgic Future", Tezuka questions our relationship to technology, suggesting that now in the 21st century, technology is so integral to our existence as humans "we don't have to adjust ourselves anymore".Reinforcing Takaharu and Yui's sense that architecture still has the capacity to positively affect humanity, this book illustrates the powerful impact of design and its values on society. Examples such as the Asahi Kindergarten, which was designed to uplift the human spirit in post-Earthquake, Miyagi Prefecture, and the Child Chemo House, which enhanced the visitation and cancer healing process of children and their families - employed these principles.

Today's kindergartens are characterized by ample space for play and movement, opportunities for creative work as well as colorful room and façade design. In collaboration with educators and architects, interior and open spaces are being developed that according to need, encourage and inspire children to romp, play, or live out a fantasy. The locus of contemporary kindergarten architecture is based on the needs of the children, for whom the rooms, furniture and gardens are designed. This title presents projects from around the world that have imaginatively and impressively mastered this architectural challenge. The featured kindergartens, day care and pre-school facilities show how the design of interiors and grounds appropriate for children fosters their joy in creative play and learning. Kindergartens, Educational Spaces reflects not only the play and innocence of children, but also the designers' inner child.

How does the built environment affect children - their health, their behaviour, education and development? To support them, what do we need to consider and what do we need to do? Can our surroundings foster environmental and social awareness and responsibility? Based on Christopher Day's experiences designing schools and early childhood centres in the United States and Britain, this groundbreaking book sets out to answer these questions and to offer solutions. Children all too often find themselves living in alien surroundings designed with the needs of adults in mind, cut off not just from the natural environment but also childhood itself. Society's reaction - to cocoon children from the outside world or to resort to drugs to control behaviour - fails to address the fundamental causes of problems which lie in the environment not the children themselves. One of the world's leading thinkers on the impact of buildings on people, Christopher Day's insights offer new light on one of the most important issues for today's society.

How can architectural form respond to the unique needs of children and support and reinforce the pedagogy of a children's centre? So much of the teaching in Early Learning revolves around the importance of a child's environment on their development. Over the last 100 years, many divergent philosophies have evolved with a wide breadth and depth of thinking and with an equally wide range of architectural responses. Children are a unique client with heightened sensory needs, special scale considerations and a totally different way of moving through and perceiving space to adults. The different educational programs and the consequent needs of the staff also impact on the architectural outcome and on how children's needs are managed.

This is the standard design guide on schools architecture, providing vital information on school architecture. Mark Dudek views school building design as a particularly specialised field encompassing ever changing educational theories, the subtle spatial and psychological requirements of growing children and practical issues that are unique to these types of building. He explores the functional requirements of individual spaces, such as classrooms, and shows how their incorporation within a single institution area are a defining characteristic of the effective educational environment. Acoustics, impact damage, the functional differentiation of spaces such as classrooms, music rooms, craft activities and gymnasium, within a single institution are all dealt with. More esoteric factors such as the effects on behaviour of colour, light, surface texture and imagery are considered in addition to the more practical aspects of designing for comfort and health. Chapter 4 comprises 20 case studies which address those issues important in the creation of modern school settings. They are state of the art examples from all parts of the world. These examples include: Pokstown Down Primary, Bournemouth; Haute Vallee School, Jersey; Heinz-Galinski School, Berlin; Anne Frank School, Papendract, Netherlands; Seabird Island School, British Columbia and The Little Village Academy, Chicago.
