What Are the Types of Transformation?

From kindergarten to senior high school and vocational high school, regardless of storage of cleaning tools, signage system, or classrooms of different subjects, hallways, or atrium, problems identified during campus inspection will be included in the scope of our transformation. Come with us to learn more about these real cases!

Regular Classroom

The classroom space was not properly utilized and had insufficient storage space; it always looked crowded and messy. With user scenarios of teachers and students in mind, the functionality and style of the classroom have been redesigned, and a suitable color scheme has been adopted to make the classroom look comfortable and practical.

Sample
Sample

Thematic Classroom

In response to the new curriculum guidelines, schools have developed diverse thematic courses, and the original space could not meet the new demands. Redefining user problems and behaviors of classroom have become very important, so that thematic classroom can meet curriculum needs, while also becoming the new symbol of the school’s learning style.

Sample
Sample

Foyer and Atrium

Important passages, such as foyer and atrium, on campus are often blocked by landscape or existing facilities, forming obvious borders between buildings of different functions. Removing unwanted line-of-sight blockage and utilizing subtraction design and organization skills are a great way to build an open learning space.

Sample

Transformation of Unused Space

Old, broken, and unused spaces have always been a common problem faced by schools. Give these unused spaces new functions and expand their user scenarios, turning every corner on campus into a place of learning and development.

Sample

Ecological Landscape

Intimacy with our environment has now become an educational objective of many schools. Utilizing see-through materials and design for the improvement of blocked outdoor spaces can enhance students’ willingness to come out of classroom to learn from and coexist with nature.

What Are the Methods of Design?

According to different types and details of transformation, methods like “subtraction design,” “compound functions,” and “mass production and modularization” can be applied.

Background

01 Subtraction Design

Utilize shapes, colors, and textures for integration to reintroduce to the space simple and intuitive usages.

Subtraction Design
Pipeline organization: Removing old and abandoned pipelines and organizing wires and pipelines according to functions and categories, so the exterior of building looks clean and organized.
Subtraction Design

02 Compound Space

Analyze user needs and create spatial configuration that meets diverse user scenarios.

Compound Space
Thematic classroom: Planned according to different ways of rehearsing and types of musical instruments to give the space horizontal and vertical configurations for greater flexibility.
Compound Space

03 Mass Production and Modularization

Through duplicable design, the outcome of transformation is no longer limited within a small space, but can be further expanded.

Mass Production and Modularization
Garbage can and recycling bin: The can and bin are redesigned based on the volume of waste, and minimalist classification icons provide ease of identification. Design with unified specs and size can be mass produced and modularized for different schools or even other agencies, and is adjustable according to different spatial conditions.

Introduce aesthetics and design to campus through participation!

This time, we fought for this opportunity for our children to experience participatory design, and to introduce different kinds of design and aesthetic concepts to our school.

Aesthetics education is not rooted in textbooks, but in life and environment. Through this project, we can really sow these seeds of aesthetics in the soil of schools.

# Education Site

Remove the Pile of Junk in the Hallway and Turn Campus into the Practice Field of Life Aesthetics

Design is not just a problem-solving tool, it is capable of changing behaviors. Regarding this, DaTong Senior Highly is probably the best example after its hallways and outdoor areas took on a brand-new look after it participated in “Design Movement on Campus” in 2019.

# Professional Critique

More than just Modification of Physical Space, the Project Has also Triggered Chemical Changes in Education

Transforming a space from ugly to beautiful is a physical effect, but changing the model of education and the relationship between people are chemical changes. The essence of education is to transform, to give a Midas touch, and these chemical changes are the influences of “Design Movement on Campus.”

# Education Site

Reversing the Authoritarian Image to Turn Parade Platform into Playground for Children

If buildings were containers of life, campuses would be the carriers of children’s daily life. When a school’s philosophy of education changes, can the campus space also evolve and progress with time as the carrier? Since ShanFeng Elementary School in Gukeng, Yunlin, changed into an experimental elementary school of Waldorf education in 2011, this question has lingered on the mind of Principal Huang Hsi-pei.
