Marlies Rohmer argues the case for an urbanism and architecture that is more attuned to the needs of the young. She seeks the solution in 'clip-on' houses with optional extra attics or sunrooms and extended front doorsteps where children can play. In other words, spaces that break through our increasingly regulated existence. The schools Rohmer has built - all with rooftop playgrounds - are the most eloquent examples of this approach. The Matrix is one of these schools. Its pure white plastic façades make it look rather futuristic. Yet it is classically structured; both the façades and the floor plans are based on the figure of the square. The solid façade sections are made up of polyester blocks with a deep geometric relief. Looking like an assemblage of giant Lego blocks, they form horizontal bands that alternate with recessed bands of glazing. Inside, sliding walls allow classrooms to be joined together or opened up, making these internal spaces functionally flexible as well.
