S.O.S-Solution Of School-urban plug-in!!


We take the epidemic as an opportunity to rethink the present condition of living and learning. This new spatial prototype for modern education would be different from the former one fixing the same group of students at the specific locations during their learning path.

“Solution Of School” is a new type system for education, which you can make orders through the Internet and be constructed by hand with neighbors. The urban learning spaces formed by Solution Of School can fit in various circumstances among cities. And with the quality of universal design, it can always be adapted to the characters of the streets and form the schools for kids.

In our “URBAN PLUG-IN!!” elementary school design, the main material used for the curved wall is a 4-meter-high translucent PP material, and a steel structure is used to build the frame. This material is not only chosen because it can interact with the base Natural dialogue, more interesting is that you can see the shadows of the children on the wall, so that parents can still feel the atmosphere in the classroom even if they are unable to participate in the class, and at the same time provide a more open park space in the city.

In our proposal, learning is not apart from daily life and school is not apart from the streets. Therefore, learning space will be evolved into the urban space for diversity and more possibilities.

    When we think of transportations in urban cities, other than transportation of human and things (logistics), the issue of ""circulation of information"" tend to be failed to notice.
    Although various people from different race and ranks come and go in terminal stations of big cities, they have no opportunities to talk and understand with each other.
    ""Map of invisible relationships"" would be engraved in our mind only if the local residents, both adults and children, would gather in one place and meet each other by communicating.
    Currently, only existing local groups such as municipalities, aging and remaining in name only, are facing to local issues.
    In that circumstances it is essential to nurture a new information network which will be a clue to solve the issues, which is in a sense, a route map in our mind.
    At this moment during the coronavirus pandemic when we cannot easily access to classrooms that are unoccupied and isolated from the region, since this plan is able to create temporary classrooms outdoors, it will work not only for benefits which keep social distances, but also as a best ""display"" that visualize relationships between people in the community they did not know.
