Norway's Day-Care Initiative: A Municipal Approach
Nemeth, Beate; Lokken, Gisle
CELE Exchange, Article 4 Oct 2012
Norway is gearing up to provide places in day care centres for all children aged between one and six and the need for more facilities has therefore increased substantially in recent years. In Tromso, the municipality has become closely involved in child-care pedagogics and architecture; a design competition it launched has brought rewarding results. The competition brief challenged the traditional organisation of a kindergarten, and opened the door to experimentation with architectural and spatial elements as part of a new pedagogical approach. This article describes one of the winning designs for a new kindergarten which was conceived by 70[degree]N arkitektur.
