Concept
Considering the fact that school buildings are not temporary and because of the amount of budget spent to construct this type of building, aggregation and flexibility are necessary. In order to make this project suitable for children and students of nursery to high school with all disabilities, each education department has its own yard. The form of the building and yards is suitable for all types of students to feel comfortable and comparatively free. This educational complex is also able to be extended in floors and there is a possibility to join some spaces together, which can highlight the concept that: “Flexibility also comes from where a system in a critical situation redeems the shortage and overlapping starts from here.”

Organization
There are five educational zones located in the building to accommodate students from all educational levels from nursery to high school. All of the educational zones are designed to provide independent activities while they can use services such as rehabilitation, therapeutic and sports facilities at the central public zone without interrupting the other educational zones. These facilities are affordable by aggregation of grades and students with all kind of disabilities.

Classes are designed to be able to join together in order to provide sufficient space when number of students increases or could be separated in two parts when more students need private education. All of the flexible classes are directly connected to a private yard which is designed with green spaces and birds in them. All private yards are able to have access to a public yard at the central public zone with car access. Having a separate yard for each grade and dividing the car access from playing area provides safety for disabled individuals. Furthermore, the public zone has a separate access for rehabilitation and sports zone for public members even after the school time.

Believing that architecture stimulates all of our senses consciously or spontaneously, Arezou Zaredar designed the Educational Complex for Students with Special Needs based on her research on Considering the Five Senses in Architecture and following the experiences of designing the Five Senses Museum.

She believes that considering the five senses perception and controlling its effective factors in architecture can increase the individual’s concentration to their surrounding environment, which will subsequently help them to identify their abilities better. Furthermore, she seeks to design spaces that not only have the lowest negative impact on the neighbors and environment, but also sustain the lowest negative impact from the environment.
