Text description provided by the architects. This is a UDG-designed kindergarten located in Xieli Garden residential quarter, Huishan District, Wuxi. This building is a three-storey elliptical, spiral ring-shaped building which is intended to create an ideal learning environment directly connected to outdoor space and abundant in sunshine.

The building takes a streamline shape and has a dynamic relation with the existing straight road system. The architectural modeling exerts a direct influence on the landscaping control line, so that the kindergarten, together with the shopping center to the west and the community center to the south, encloses a high-quality, comfortable square space suitable for walking and lingering.

 At the same time, as for the side facing the road, we need to consider shielding traffic noise, and in the design we use a slightly rolling terrain with green plant landscape to tactfully separate the kindergarten from the roads to effective reduce the effect of the traffic noise on the interior environment of the kindergarten.

The main building gives comprehensive consideration to the building effect and cost control by using the northwestern and southeast facades as the main building facades, which use U-shaped glass, PC sun boards and perforated plates.
