Indian architect Sandeep Khosla explains the importance of outdoor learning at DPS Kindergarten School in Bangalore, India, which won the education category at Inside Festival 2013 in Singapore.

DPS Kindergarten School by Khosla Associates is a prototype for a series of school buildings to be rolled out across southern India.

“The brief was to really create a typology that could be repeated and adapted to further schools in the region,” says Khosla. “We used exposed concrete as the starting point and we created a very modular system that can be expanded vertically as well as horizontally. So the inside of the classrooms are basically the stripped-down materials of the architecture.”
