We love this idea! From FastCompany.
It’s becoming more common for teachers to take elementary school students outside to get a math or science lesson—especially in places like California, where the state hopes to add a garden to every school. But a new design takes the idea of the school garden further: Instead of a small plot on the corner of a playground, the entire school is a farm.
“We think that kids should enjoy nature,” says Edoardo Capuzzo, one of the Rome-based designers who won a recent architecture competition for their concept of a preschool farm. “So we designed this strange school: No classrooms, but open spaces where vegetables grow inside and animals can come in too. It’s a mixing of the two things, school and nature.”
