Frequent readers of PSFK will note we’ve been keeping an eye on inspired school designs that aim to create innovative places for learning. The recent renovation of the Fuji Kindergarten in the Tokyo suburb of Tachikawa definitely got our attention. The project is the result of work by Tezuka Architects and a collaboration with designer Kashiwa Sato (who contributed to the design of the New York Uniqlo store) to expand the building but retain the schools unique spirit.
