Zuiderkroon children’s centre in Schooldomein edition about adaptive building

Adaptive building differs from flexible building. Flexible is an architectural way of dealing with spaces conveniently; for example, a flexible wall can connect two classrooms. Flexible is a facility tool, whereas adaptive has to do with vision. As you do not really know how the building and the spaces in it will be used in the future, you have to come up with a building that can grow along with future developments, without the need for expensive structural adjustments in the meantime.

The latest edition of Schooldomein features the children’s centre Kindcentrum Zuiderkroon, because it is an ideal example of an adaptive building. The article is a plea to stop demolishing buildings in order not to further burden the world.
