Real children do not sit in rows or at work stations, at least not for long. They jump up, run around, tumble, laugh and explore. Architect Takaharu Tezuka designed a kindergarten for real children.

It is a big circle where children can rum and jump, climb trees, hang their legs out over space, move cubes around to design their learning area, and generally be themselves. This is a kindergarten built to encourage imagination and movement.

Takaharu Tezuka makes the point that architects can design for humans, in world-changing way. This school is a good example of his vision in action.
