The kindergarden is thought as a miniature city that opens up on interior patios and common rooms. The slopes of roof are continuously varied and form different"houses" that mark the daily activities with skylights and clerestory windows. For each section (nursery and kindergarden) there halls for the common activities that open up on an interior patio, the resting area and the classrooms with their services. This structure, part of the experimental program for primary schools of the Emilia Romagna region, hosts the children for the whole day and marks the daily activities through gradations of natural light and transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces.
