Hey, I'm doing my masters at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, I want to base my project on the research and development of child related soft ware and toys, through this I would like to achieve an environment where a toy/IT company can be combined with an evolved kindergarten, allowing for research and testing of the products and their influence on the kids in a safe, familiar environment. Therefore achieving a better learning and playing facility for the children and allowing the designers to evolve and better their products with the help of the children. Looking at the Architecture I would like to move away from the paradigm of painting Micky Mouse and Fairies on the walls by creating a stimulating environment through movement, texture and colour.
other themes I have considered is designing an orphanage, because of the aids pandemic, millions of children are left homeless.

Any help will be appretiated related to these subjects, precedents or any suggestions for orther thesis topics since time is running out and I havent found anything that captures me enouth!
