The Educational Nature

Miguel Majano joins the Portfolio Challenge for the second time, and this time around he is showing us his perspective of how a Montessori School can incorporate nature into the classroom.

Miguel Majano Díaz is a member of our Architect-US Job+J1 Visa Program, and previously submitted The Exposed Interior. This time around he is submitting a project called The Educational Nature, which takes on educational design for a Montessori school on the Tagus River in Toledo, Spain. Miguel went to Universidad de Castilla – La Mancha for his degree in Architecture, and has been working towards finding a new opportunity in New York City, more specifically in Educational Building design.

The idea behind The Educational Nature is to create a space in touch with nature that allows for the students of the Montessori school to have a sense of the classroom being everywhere, not one specific room or place. Miguel also talks about the use of native materials in the building such as bricks and wood from Toledo, and more creative ways of incorporating storage space into the structure. Below you will see how Miguel provides us with a look inside his design world, where he is able to go into detail on the different sections and structures that form the whole building being designed.
