the site’s limited perimeter required the architects to build a multistory space. to connect the structure with the surrounding city, the street-facing facade is dotted with colorful, projecting window frames. the simple, house-like forms of the window bays were inspired by the elementary, block-house model often drawn by children. this form, universally recognized by the young and old is directly implemented into masahiko fujimori’s design for the new learning space, but reworked and reinterpreted to create a more complex design — fulfilling the school’s programs, but also maintain the comfort of the home.
Each Tuesday is EducationTuesday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts about educators and all things STEM. Adafruit supports our educators and loves to spread the good word about educational STEM innovations!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
