Abstract: The early formative years play a primary role in shaping the personality of a child. Consequently, preschool education a child receives impacts his/ her future development and learning capabilities. Current typologies in Singapore place an emphasis on academic education which is relatively sterile and static compared to the more interactive hands on learning. Since children learn best from personal experience, this system is less effective for young children, especially those with ADHD and learning problems. Their learning occurs at a slower rate and this has a cumulative effect over time. Thus, there is an urgent need in providing a more effective learning environment. Attention Restorative Theory proposes that the provision of daylight, natural ventilation and greenery can help to improve the mental focus of people. For my thesis, I am interested in exploring the possibilities of an integration of architecture and the aspects of Attention Restorative Theory, allowing children to have direct learning from their surroundings, helping to improve the issue of slow learning amongst children with ADHD.
