Here is a selection of pages taken from the first half of my thesis marked: 'An historical framework', and which leads on from my last thesis update: round 1.
I hope that this theoretical framework will offer a foundation to understanding the 'roots' of early childhood education and how they might relate to their architectural expressions.
Next up is part two: Defining an early childhood architectural typology (a brief).
This section breaks down the various components of the architecture of early childhood and discusses the implications of various architectural expressions for young children. This section is devised as a kind of guide for both early childhood practitioners and architects.
There is still more to come here, so keep posted!
