"Physical movement and play are fundamental parts of a child’s development and are necessary components for successful learning environments. Yet the current standard for learning environments for children do little to encourage their natural and biologically necessary desire for physical engagement. This thesis serves to explore the idea that architecture can change this standard approach to design and become the catalyst for physical activity and play in children. Architecture cannot change the educational system. However, it can influence the way we teach by changing the way teachers and students interact with the architecture. I believe through intentional design that architecture can encourage movement and become a critical component to the proper education and development of children."
