Kindergarten Designed As a Ring Around A Tree

Kindergarten Designed As a Ring Around A Tree

Tokyo school embraces architecture that encourages free movement and encourages play.

Fuji Kindergarten’s play and learning spaces were designed in harmony with a typhoon-surviving Zelkova tree.

The structure is basically a compressed glass spiral that encourages freed movement by ridding the space of any furniture and school design rigidity. Instead, much of the structure uses wood and soft rubber and the furniture is more communal. The structure functions as a connector to the main kindergarten building, which was also designed by Tezuka Architects.
