China-based architecture practice MAD has designed a truly quirky kindergarten building that is designed to stimulate children and create an environment that is conducive to both learning and play.
Located in the Aichi Prefecture of Japan, this kindergarten building retains the wooden skeleton of its predecessor although it features a white sheathing that helps improve the appearance of the building while retaining its old rugged charm.
The most unique feature of this kindergarten building is a slide attached to the second floor window. Every child's dream, this slide allows children to climb out of the window and slide directly into the playground.
This kindergarten building speaks to the influence of architecture, which has the power to influence mood and learning outcomes.
