Danilo Concha’s Playful Tension

This project studies the idea of Playful tension in the application of program relationship to materiality. The use of material layering is implemented to create new unique dynamic spaces where kids can circulate within the school and have a different experience in each overall Sawtooth. This application of Playful Tension continues to develop by the use of scaling to further breakdown the norm of a rigid classroom program space to a more open playful teaching environment with a connection to the outside world.
