We designed the new project for the Happiness Autism Center. The design grew up from the teaching methods used by the teachers, with spaces designed specifically for the education for children with autism. As well as these classrooms, the building also houses a Teaching Institute for the education of teachers educating children with autism.
The main feature of the building is the children’s pods which combines 4 learning areas around central void, toilets and offers direct access to external play and learning as well as teacher support and contact. Each learning area has controlled outdoor play, withdrawal and toilets in junior years.
The project is readily accessible to the main school/institute spaces and produce a smaller sub-school environment with differing options depending on the age and nature of the students.
