The bright and cheerfully colored 'Plaza Ecopolis' by Ecosistema Urbano is a remarkable piece of eco architecture that serves not only as an educational facility for young children and its community, but also as a model of inviting sustainable design.

Most prominent in the structure's design is its distinct yellow canopy which is tightly draped over a steel infrastructure which allows light to filter into the building but which cuts down on solar heat gain. The bright and vivid exterior was a key to the design of 'Plaza Ecopolis' by Ecosistema Urbano because it serves as both a childcare and recreation facility.Photo Credits: designboom, ecosistemaurbano
