Kalba Kindergarten was designed by the renowned Arab modernist architects George Rais and Jaafar Tukan. In 1973, the two architects were commissioned by the UAE Ministry of Education to design a kindergarten prototype that would be adaptable to different locations around the country. Over 13 kindergartens were constructed by 1976. While most still maintain their original function, a few have been knocked down and many have been architecturally altered.
Participants will learn about the history of Kalba Kindergarten and then take part in a sketching session.
