The Civic Entrepreneur

A New Age of Childcare

Childcare is in need of reformation.

My aim was to create a work which breaks down the layers of legislation - symbiotic with childcare - to empower people to engage with its reformation from the core.

By branching into entrepreneurship, my knowledge to the limitations of an architect was offered space to breathe. Beyond spatial design, I used what I was learning through law, business, product design, cultural studies; to prove the feasibility of a network of care.

Proposing a network of care dispersed throughout a neighbourhood is one model of bespoke childcare which can potentially work for this community in Newham. It is my intention that this work be received as inspiration to ideas of achievable realities.
