the ‘T-nursery’ by japanese practice uchida.tak architects is aptly named for the three pillars that make up the conceptual backbone of the project: timber, trusses, and trapezoids. located in a commuter city just outside of fukuoka, the children’s care center is composed of repeatable modules that allow for future expansion or reduction.
