About the surface, by consider the urban landscape, we made the designed that had hard texture feeling like a factory.  At the same time, through the courtyard to set up a lot of greens, to create a soft atmosphere. In order to cultivate the kids’ curiosity.  And about the indoor, the places where usually be hidden were deliberately exposed, to create atmosphere like the factory. At the same time, through the ventilator of the piping made of transparent, and put the propeller inside, so that children can learn how the wind flow. By exposed the pipe of washbasin, let the kids know how the flow of water working inside the drain-pipe

Through the design of trampling generating plant, let the children learn how electricity is flowing. Like these, many discover places has been designed. Kindergarten is a place for education and growth, not a place with noble color and toys, as a kindergarten, let the children through their own thinking to create like what we respect is one of the results of our design.
