The plot of the Childhood Pavilion appears today as an urban room tightly surrounded by buildings, walls and fences. The proximity of old and recent skyscrapers, big infrastructures and residential buildings makes the site appearing as a small and protected urban interior. This interior has one big opening: a unique window towards the new park and the city.
The proposal for the Childhood Pavilion starts from this extremes and com- plex urban conditions: the building is a cloister that redesigns the hetero- geneous limits of the area and on the meantime gives a new facade towards the park: a new open and permeable front dialogues now with the facing public space.
