"Head in the Clouds"

"Head in the Clouds"

This is the culmination of a 5-day workshop at the École Speciale d'Architecture. My teammates were Michele Aldrich and Edouard Grignon.
The project we proposed was building a nursery for children above an old Parisian block located next to the Centre Pompidou.
The idea behind the project was to take the traditional arrangement of a preschool, kids go do an activity then return back to the room, and make it a linear path. In order to make this possible we devised a tram that would carry the essential equipment a teacher would need. This tram would travel down this path stop and various location along the way. The kids could do various activities unique to being above buildings. They could slide down roofs and climb up climbing walls in other parts.
