It also need to be an attractive shape so that it can draw the attention from kids. As a result the freeform masses come to answer all of these requirements with the curve walls that define the room create an unmeasured space where the unexpected activities always happen.

The clear glass curve walls acting like thin layers that separate softly between learning space inside and playing space outside in order to get the kids closely to the nature environment.
