How many of parents think that great schools are the ones in a central city, have a marvelous and complete school equipment with bonafide teachers and lots of textbooks? And how many of them trust a school that has a roof from palm-fiber or even no roof at all !! Despite it’s controversial, kindergartens’ architecture nowadays starts coming in various shape, concept, and materials which in the end result makes the adults very jealous.
1. Fuji Kindergarten
Located in Tokyo, this kindergarten transforms early childhood learning into a whole new level. The design is very wide open with an accessible roof so the children can do whatever they like there such as climbing a nearby tree and running around. The design is safe enough for children to play around even though at first you don’t feel quite sure about that. But Hey, children are active creatures so they should not just sit and be nice. The builder, Tezuka architect also said it can encourage socialization between children and values of equality.
