surrounded by rice fields, japanese architects HIBINOSEKKEI + youji no shiro have developed a nursery school based around the concept of wind power. organized around a central courtyard, each of the scheme’s volumes are interpreted as blades of a windmill – connected, yet maintaining a sense of independence. the one storey timber structure is surrounded with low canopies, enclosing a semi-outdoor space that serves as an area of sheltered communal recreation. wooden walkways link the various facilities, while floor-to-ceiling glazing is utilized to flood internal areas with natural light.
