001 The Learning House

Designed by: James Shen, Zang Feng, He Zhe, Anouchka van Driel and Olivia Chen

Design Trust Affiliation: Design Trust Feature Grantee

Description: 

The Learning House serves as a metaphor and point of inspiration within the reality of life during the COVID-19 pandemic. As people remain indoors for their own safety and that of others, the home becomes the pivot of life, it becomes the school, the city and the world all in one.
Inspired by their award-winning Plugin House design, the People’s Architecture Office has designed a simple activity kit for kids to construct at home to stimulate creativity and exercise fine motor skills. Folded up, The Learning House serves as a little house-shaped protective box. Unfolded, it reveals a whole world from the small space of this home, a whole world that one can colour and make better – something much needed at this time.
