2021 -

Architects Without Borders (OW SARP) and the Tremend Sp. z o.o. studio are working together on the design of an educational garden for children. It is to be a special place for play, learning, therapy and meetings. The project, which is an example of sustainable architecture, is being developed in Warsaw for the Dajemy Dzieciom Siłę Foundation.

Educational gardens are places created to support the proper development of children. Being in them gives a sense of security, allows to commune with nature, develops imagination and creativity and increases curiosity about the world. Learning takes place, among other things, thanks to specially designed thematic paths, where children learn the basics of nature or ecology. Such a garden, combining therapeutic and educational functions, will soon be built for the foundation Dajemy Dzieciom Siłę. Architects Without Borders (OW SARP) and the Tremend studio are responsible for its design. The existing patio at the Foundation will gain a new surface, children's play equipment, benches and lighting.

nature treatment

In addition to education, the gardens also have a therapeutic function. Active and passive contact with nature can complement traditional forms of rehabilitation and prevention. It allows for physical and mental rest and tranquility. Therapy can take the form of performing simple activities in the garden or simply being surrounded by plants and watching nature.

in a world of senses

The garden is planned to include relaxing sensory zones designed to affect the senses: smell, sight, touch. Children will also find a tree house and a small amphitheater for expressing various forms of expression.

ecology above all

The architects have opted for ecological solutions. The garden will feature small architecture - insect and bird houses and anti-smog paving. Recycled materials - wood, steel and ceramics - will be used during construction. The project will also include natural materials such as pampas grasses, wood and stone. There will also be photovoltaic panels on the roof of the foundation building, heat pumps and eco-friendly light sources.

The project was made as part of the charity "Man's work for man," and was inspired by a workshop held with children to point the way forward for Architects Without Borders OW SARP Circle and architects and engineers.
