Though most kindergartens around the world put an emphasis on color and playful elements, the one designed by the architect Emmanuelle Moureaux in Fukouoka, Japan, takes those design elements to the next level.

The architect's goal was to create a building that had a visible purpose, but that also suited the contemporary aesthetic that he prefers. On its exterior, the elevated white structure features dynamic crisscross panels that feature various pops of color, with similar colors being grouped together to give a rainbow-like aesthetic.

The building's interior has a similar focus on color, while floor to ceiling windows and light wooden furniture and flooring ensures the space looks bright, open and expansive – making it an excellent environment for young children to both learn and play in.
