Graphic Concrete Tervajoki School

Tervajoki school building facade has been captured the children's drawings illustrated in Graphic Concrete. The city would like to have an artistic work on the school building. Initiated from a limited budget and short construction timetable, it would have been challenging a project, but the architects implemented to Graphic Concrete as the solution. 

The architects were inspired by the picture presenting multi-national people and would like to show the people who are in this building. Instead of hiring an artist, they requested children to draw their portraits and selected portraits of boys and girls, and younger and older children. Finally, the architect adjusted the drawings as iconic features of all the children and implemented them in Graphic Concrete. In addition, the architects placed the drawings on tiles and left some as empty tiles referring to unborn children in the future.
