For many students combining family life with academic work represents a challenge. What if day care and research activity would be arranged in close proximity? The Hybrid Kita is proposing a spatial model that combines educational facilities for kids with study rooms, workspaces and research labs. Based on diverse pedagogical concepts education spaces for kids and for students are similarly experimenting with diverse set-ups. The Kita turns into a kindergarden landscape that interacts with academic spaces and inspires in a playful and unconventional way.
