"When bubbles meet the ceiling, why do the bubbles burst, instead of the ceiling bursts?" In children's world, one feels the urge to protect the beauty of their senses and imagination! Instinctual character is far more important than a contrived personality. — N.J. Harperrickon The Imagination of Bubbles - we wish to create artistic space using children's thinking. • The classroom plane
is designed with inspiration of the earliest children's art of thread drawing. Allow the children to explore the space through the curved visual area. The linear movement in the space inspires the children, stimulating their interest and curiosity in art. • The simplest and most intuitive loop route is designed according to the allocated area, which is in term determined by the classroom function. At the intersection, around the corner, there are naughty circles which look like bubbles. • We hope to transform the space into an inspiration for education, activating children’s sense of art at an early age. • The classroom is not just defined by doors, as the stage is everywhere. • There is more fun in the aggregation of public spaces, which might be a workshop, or a mini-concert. • Public personal space is set up inside the Art Center, which allows the children to express themselves freely. We hope the Art Center will be a space for education in function, and a serine and nourishing place for the soul in spirit.

Curriculum studio / partecipanteHele International Art Center, Wuhan, founded by China Poly Education, is an art institution for children aged 4 to 12. In the earlier stage of the project, the owner of the project proposed 3 key demands: 1. The Art Center should not feature childlike fun. Instead, it should establish an image of professional education institution. 2. The design of the interior space should be based on the feelings of children, which is different from the constrained and rigid style of traditional teaching environment. 3. The Art Center itself should be a space of art in the city. We hope to transform the space into an inspiration for education,activating children’s sense of art at an early age.
