WINNER OF An Educational Garden in Fiorano Modenese: Planetary Garden

Bruna Sigillo - Italy


Project Description:

Gilles Cléments taught us to look at the garden like a planet. Insects, birds, plants, trees, oxygen, water co-exist in a garden in synergy. And who takes care of the garden? Planetary gardeners, of course! This metaphor becomes the heart of the project which translates into a very light intervention that respects the existing structure but it add value through the insertion of a few elements: > the urban edge, at the entrance, is enhanced with a new green façade; > the parterre is designed as a playground. From the access, the new driveway holds a colored insert (also to facilitate disabilities) that guides the internal paths; > the "green" area expands. It is defined by a large interactive ring. The ideal lines that connect the trees protect the areas and suggest their uses with slight changes of surfaces and materials, always natural. The equipment are inserted between small shrubs, child friendly, and the canopies become roofs for the classrooms. How can the garden of a kindergarten become a beautiful space for everyone to live in? The project tries to respond to the possible needs of users, also opening up to the city: > for parents who wait. It would be nice to sit and chat among the purple shades of the scented lavender. > for teachers who can implement teaching thanks to the introduction of equipment designed to respond to the five fields of experience; > for the neighbourhood of all ages who can enjoy and contribute to sharing the garden to be an urban nursery during opening occasions to the city; > for children, the roots of society, to which a magical space should be reserved where every day they can be protagonists of adventures, to train to become the planetary gardeners of the future. All this can happen in a garden? Yes, if it is a planetary garden!

Excerpt from the motivations of the Jury:



The Jury rewards the project “Planetary Garden” with the first Prize. The proposal by Bruna Sigillo shows to have addressed in a comprehensive and balanced manner the challenge to preserve the peculiar features of the existing with a set of delicate interventions without missing the opportunity to provide a new identity to the Coccapani kindergarden outdoor spaces. The project narrative unfolds according to a sequence of frames, each featuring a a pedagogical purpose and a spatial unity designed to explore nature, the others and the self. The project offers to the young members of the Coccapani community, their educators, staff and families, an open palimpsest on which to write their stories and to grow together. Designed for making nature a driving force in the development of the child, “Planetary Garden” is the proposal that best encompasses the contest targets and that demonstrates through accurate metrics its economic, social and environmental sustainability

Excerpt from the motivations of the Jury:



The jury rewards the project “Educational Garden” with a honorable mention. The proposal by Nina Gogina outlines an ecosystem generated by a combination of organic and mineral forms that spread from its center to the outer borders. No hierarchy dictates how kids should experience different zones and activities, and delicate if not even blurring boundaries prevent nature from taking over. The use of logs and branches as playground components emphasizes the spointaneity of a setting that seems to pre-exist the man-made, and to last beyond it.

Excerpt from the motivations of the Jury:



The jury rewards the project “Back to the Roots” with a honorable mention. The proposal by Alberto Ferrara superimposes a light honeycomb grid on the existing setting and provides the framework for the reorganization of the landscape both at the ground level and in elevation. Thanks to its underpinning grid, the project promotes an alternance of “penciled” elements such as change in materials or colours, with more cohesive and three-dimensional ones. This choice reflects itself in the children experience, that would be at the same time guided and free to explore.

Excerpt from the motivations of the Jury:



The jury rewards the project “Treasure Island” with a honorable mention. The project by Carolina Pelosato explores with mesmerizing graphics the borderless territory of kids imagination, transforming the courtyard in the ideal set of their imaginative performances. Simple although multi-faceted in offering a variety of zones for the accomplishment of different activities, the project questions in a innovative way the pedagogical purposes of an early learning center, by putting kids at the center of the architectural construct.
