Nursery Pavilion. Designed for the TInnGO project by Ronald Jurianto
The Nursery Pavilion has been created to provide shelter whilst promoting the normality of breastfeeding. With a ‘baby bump’ inspired form, the pavilion serves multiple levels of educational information, whilst the integral structure figuratively elevates the needs of children as high priority. The design team drew inspiration from the pillars of society, as a metaphor to inform and inspire. The space within is well-suited for parents to both feed and attend to their children, allowing families to have quality time together. The pavilion’s green living roof softens and blurs the overall form in contrast with a harsh city environment whilst providing a haven for natural wildlife to be enjoyed, as a further metaphor for the beauty of nature. The planting are seasonal, creating opportunity to introduce a wider array of wildlife forming natural ecosystems unusual to an urban landscape, furthering its pursuit towards educating and normalising nature within the society.
