Esperimetro School, a new dynamic space for children



The project Esperimetro School, completed by Aut Aut Architettura for the Garzoni School in Udine, is conceived to improve the quality of public educational facilities and offer a stimulating, experienceable, dynamic space to the children.

Based on Loris Malaguzzi’s idea of the environment as a third teacher, the architects created a non-neutral scenario: they focused on the insertion of a wooden device arranged on the perimeter that acts as a seat, chest, display case, bookcase, storage, etc.

Its articulation suggests several activities: reading, theater, music, botany, creative workshops, without defining them clearly in order to maximize the flexibility and allowing the contamination of knowledge while stimulating relational dynamics.

In addition to the lower modules, the device includes wardrobes that develop vertically, capable of accommodating the material; finally, a longboard is juxtaposed to the wall stimulating children to leave traces of their activities.
