DESIGNING FOR CHILDREN USING LEGO ART IN CREATING A USER CENTERED LEARNING ENVIRONMENT IN WARLDORF KINDERGATEN IN NAIROBI

ABSTRACT
The research aims to do the following: study the present day Nairobi gallery and in particular the interior architecture, exhibition and display, furniture and landscaping concepts in order to ascertain the problems encountered and propose relevant changes.
The researcher went on his research with the assumption that a new gallery design would elevate the reputation of the gallery leading to more participant artists and visitors.
The researcher went to the site, observed the gallery and took photographs. The researcher was able to have informal discussions with some visitors, staff members and the museum curator. From observations made by the researcher, the gallery has not implemented human centered design to its interiors thus some factors are hazardous to people. The interior coupled with the lighting design is not very pleasing thus the need for an upgrade.
In doing a review of what other researchers have done concerning gallery spaces, the researcher went out to look for information from sources in the library such as books and thesis. The researcher also heavily borrowed information from internet sources. From the observations and findings, the researcher proposed the implementation of human centered design inspired by a contemporary theme.
The researcher concluded that the interior design of the gallery needs an upgrade. The researcher then made the necessary recommendations that would improve the galleries present condition
