The traditional education consists of teacher and the student and a “space”
where the teacher can give lessons. These spaces might have started as under
the tree moving into outdoors classroom with furniture and then into the
enclosed classrooms (four-walled space with rows of furniture). How can new
spaces unfold the layers of playfulness and haptic experience and utilize them to
enrich early childhood education? This thesis is based on envisioning new
spaces through storytelling. Presented in a series of children books that set-up a
mind frame, which helps to better understand the children needs and
behaviors. The design strategy is to create poetic and haptic spaces through
storytelling and sculpting in imaginative narratives to help children learn and
play in more attuned environments.
