Using spaces, shapes and textures

The inspiring architecture and design of the Pavilion is a wonderful palate of spaces, shapes and textures to use as creative building blocks.

Approaching the building through this palate is an ideal way of giving children the freedom to make choices about the spaces, shapes and textures that appeal to them.

The building is very sculptural, and exploring it through its shapes and textures gives a different experience and perception to thinking about its function. Children are encouraged to think in a more abstracted way, but it can also lead to a discussion about how certain architectural and design features can create a particular atmosphere and can affect how we feel in a building.
