‘bubbletecture M’ is a kindergarten designed by japanese studio shuhei endo architect institute. located in shiga, japan the maihara kindergarten is surrounded by a newly developed residential area. the structure consists of concrete boxes between each of the rooms and a wooden roof that ties them together. the shell-form roof is made of triangular continuous surfaces; its structural strength and geometrical consistency permits great freedom in designing of the necessary spaces. this structural system uses 2.5 meters wooden beams and hexagonal metal fittings, factory-made and only assembled on the site. the integration of the wooden trusses and concrete boxes is geometrical but varied, a structure with rich in expressive effects.‘open space allows children to play freely. the ambiguity of it actually stimulates their imaginations. they can explore their feelings without restraint. architects should not create inflexible spaces that children cannot change.’ – shuhei endo

  • probably best thing about it is that the children can easily climb up onto the roof and use it as a gigantic slide
