Nurseries: a design guide

By Mark Dudek (Routledge, 19.99)

Rather than focusing on the latest state-of-the-art projects, renowned nursery architect Mark Dudek revisits a number of children's buildings that have been in use for ten to 15 years. In doing so, he highlights how good design facilitates a vibrant environment that continues to grow and develop along with its children.

The book covers key ideas that make up a sustainable nursery, historical concepts dating from the eighteenth century that initiated design for children, and analysis of a new nursery building in central Europe. Most important of all, the author poses the question- how do we design for play? This is explained with practical examples of how children relate to the environment in a positive way.
