In this thesis project I have set forth the idea of scale that architecture plays in communicating its functional and aesthetic values. In term of its functional aspect, the design is to fulfill the purpose of the building as a place where children spend their day time at. Aesthetic value, on the other hand, is the quality of beauty that the building possesses after the thesis mission is materialized. In pursuing this intent I chose a Child Development Center to become my thesis vehicle. An exclusive residential area in Lubbock at 69th and Quaker near Leroy Elmore Park, has been selected as a proposed site due to its high demand of this kind of facility. It is to serve about 100 children of various ages ranging from 0 to 6 years old. As the mission of this project implies, the goal is to provide a place where children can feel like being in their own "Small World".
