Hi, I'm an architecture student. I think this project is wonderful. It looks so simple but effective. I want to know more about this building due to my final project at university. My final project is to design a children centre based on the children's needs and behaviour. so, can i have more information about the concept of this building? you can send it to my email, it means a lot to me. thank you.

A striking childrens' centre that breaks new ground in the design of nursery facilities 

The Fawood Childrens' Centre in Harlesden, North London, provides a delightful safe environment for pre school children within a spectacular new building on the Stonebridge estate. Alsop Design has created an intriguing and imaginative community resource by designing the Centre as a vast shed-like enclosure encompassing brightly coloured classroom units interspersed with protected external play areas. Recycled prefabricated three-storey sea containers, resembling giant children’s building blocks, have been specially adapted, decorated and fitted out to provide the necessary indoor play and teaching areas. A Mongolian Yurt provides supplementary indoor space, while adding richness, colour and delight. The design promotes complete integration of indoor and outdoor environments.
