dc.description.abstract This practicum blurs the interior boundaries through the design of an enhanced Montessori environment in Winnipeg, Canada. Through the study of Forest Kindergartens and Biophilic Design, interior and exterior space work cohesively together to provide an alternative learning environment. By fusing the interior with exterior, the Montessori philosophy is designed for in an innovative way, while simultaneously implementing the benefits of Biophilic Design and Forest Kindergartens. Through a comprehensive literature review, precedent studies, and a conceptual exploration, an enhanced program and design concept have been established to apply the theoretical framework to the built environment. As a result, the foundational principles surrounding the Montessori philosophy and Forest Kindergartens have been designed for, using Biophilic Design as a catalyst. The final concept truly supports the Montessori philosophy, instilling independence through community, hands on learning, and risk through every aspect of the design. en_US
