Architecture Competition – 1st Prize 2005

This contemporary Croatian nursery school was a Mies van der Rohe Awards 2009 Nominee

The new kindergarten in Sesvete is one of more poetic projects in recent Croatian architecture, according to the architects Radionica arhitekture. That which was obvious in the competition entry sketches from 2004 was confirmed in the realisation of the micro-world oriented inwards, poetic, but geometrically precise; a meadow softly enveloped by the ground-floor stretch of kindergarten units.

A kind of geometrical, mathematical reduction is a property of several Radionica’s projects. This is sometimes readable from the cross-section, sometimes from the ground-floor plan, but always im volume proportions. Projects and realisations of Radionica can often be reduced to elementary parts: basic geometric figures and their combinations. Complex rather than complicated relations between simple parts create layered, inner and outer, closed and open rationalised landscapes.

The other common charasteristic of Radionica’s projects during an ample period of time is the marked presence of “natural” elements in them, not in the sense of “environmental consciousness”, but in the sense of its organic content in the “cultural” element of architecture. In its essence, the elegant gesture of enveloping a transformed slope by a curved trajectory means radical eqalization of architecture and landscape in which each of the two elements also follows its own “logics” and the “logics” of that other element.
