Spectrum Learning Centre

Fuelled by Rudolf Steiner’s study of liberation from traditional architecture and education, Spectrum Learning Centre is a project that explores the use of interior architecture as a healing medium for children with autism spectrum disorder. It transforms an existing office facility located in Carlton into a learning environment, taking these children through a series of therapeutic yet whimsical enterprises. This proposal embodies a gradient of spatial cues, combined with unusual material application that is tailored to produce sensorial stimulus, engaging the body in all five senses. With a strong emphasis on the freedom to explore and play, this project will see that amusement is a more effective cure to autism in children.
