Description: Grand Children Palace, an early learning center, helps children get off to the best possible start and develop various skills while enjoying different monthly programs. The cross-shape open space in the middle of the center provided more possibilities for teacher and external organization to hold events and classes.
In Southern China, most of early learning centers only have separate classrooms for children to learn and play. But usually this kind of classroom is small and it would have a restriction on children and parents while playing and studying. At the client early learning center, I found out the curved steel structures of roof above the flat ceiling are kind of similar to the Grand Palais in France. Actually I think we could take the Grand Palais as the reference for early learning center design, because the Grand Palais has a spacious open space, housing various artistic events of Paris. What if we could give the early learning center much more space for future events and playground? The idea would save budget for clients, better business plan for propaganda, better place for hosting events and more ideal way for teaching and playing. In the end, we keep a big comfortable space in the middle of the center. We hope this space with curved design would finally become a palace for children.

设计说明：第一次来到场地，透过平顶天花的空隙，建筑结构的美妙让人想到巴黎的大皇宫，才有了之后的故事。 小朋友们都向往着室外更宽敞的地方，进行各种活动，但在国内，大部分的儿童中心，都是一个个隔开的课室，孩子和老师活动的可能性都有很大的限制性。 一个空瓶子，只有里面更空，才能容得下更多的水。空间的宽广，才让空间拥有无限的可能性，好比巴黎大皇宫。巴黎大皇宫是一个玻璃弧顶建筑，每年不同的季节都举办不同的活动，比如Chanel的秀场，艺术家的展览，赛马运动，花艺展等等，从一个世博会的展馆变成了一个文化的聚集地。 所以我们决定赋予这个空间更大的可能性，提供各种各样的活动给孩子和老师。尽量减少密闭小空间，在中间留出舒适的大空间。我们希望，一个充满美妙弧度的大空间，可以成为孩子们的皇宫。
