My thesis in the field of architecture, occupying space in the perception of primary school age children. The introduction to the topic deals with the perception of space apart in general. The sense organs serve the people perceive their environment and enable the architectural spaces felt on several levels. Created by the combination of visual and acoustic impressions in the mind of every man is a subjective picture of the perceived space.
The cubature, acoustics, lighting and the individual design of a room are the basic architectural means to its effect on people's lives positively and negatively.
We penetrate deeper into the room so one perceives its sociological qualities. The classroom as a social space is seen as an architectural framework for activities, interactions and social communication. The perception on the emotional level is individual and subjective.
Especially in children, the school is a second home for the children, so it is important to teach them that the required security. The identification with the school room is a positive sense of space for the children is very important and contributes significantly to the feel-good factor at the school. The habitability and the possibility of social communication are a key factor in people building schools.
For a practical illustration of me were two schools selected, analyzed and architectural quality Faced with respect to the developed basics. In the election of the two objects I've taken out a newly constructed school, VS Mauth / Wels, an over 100 year old school VS Römerberg school to provide against.
It was one of my fourth Class for spatial perception of their own school with the help of a specially designed questionnaire (with reference to Rittelmeyer were interviewed). Then it did a short interview was carried out with the kids in the group.
Whether similar for the children of the feel-good factor in a historic old building is like a modern new building could be answered at the end of my work in detail with the help of the results of the questionnaire and the insights gained thereby.
