Hello everyone! Chloé from  here again. I love when light and colour are combined in architecture, don’t you? Changing weather, seasons and settings mean light dances across buildings in ever-changing and dynamic ways. Spanish architect  designed this kindergarten in Granada, Spain around a central courtyard or playground that serves as the heart of the centre. With a striking and modern white exterior, the school features frameless rainbow windows in communal spaces like hallways while leaving the glass in classrooms colourless. The result is corridors full of dazzling, multi-coloured light that is constantly changing as the sun moves during the school day.

Alejandro’s design really feels like an interpretation of a child’s paint palette that seamlessly marries modern architecture with childlike wonder. If I went to this kindergarten, I would be counting the minutes until break time so I could pick a patch of coloured light to explore for the day…

    Are you serious? Do the designers have kids of kindergarten age? I predict not. Apart from a lovely use of coloured in the windows, where is the imagination? Take away the coloured glass and what is left? Where are the “secret” nooks and interesting crannies, the ramps & bridges that take the child’s play into another rehlm? Long planar corridors, no relief from an excess of single surface, no texture and not much playful use of space or form for fun. Let Gaudi design a kindergarten for a lesson on imaginitive spaces. This is more like a commercial foyer than a kindegarten. Sorry guys back to the drawing board.

    Is the last picture an exterior photo at twilight or prior to sunrise twilight ? I love photos taken during the “magic hour” aka “blue hour” which is about the hour prior to sunrise or within the hour after sunset . I love the deep blue sky balanced with artificial or “human made” lighting . photos at night just have a black sky . and mid day photos in the sun or overcast lack a feeling of depth . I once saw the grand canyon in arizona usa at noon and it didn’t appeal to me . when i saw it durnig the magic hour it had depth perception and was just beautiful . i mean you can make a crack in the sidewalk look monumental and surreal with the right natural light and sometimes flash fill …..,
