Fuji Kindergarden by Tezuka Architects

Travel with Gehry has a little write-up of a kindergarden in Japan by Tezuka Architects. The plan is a giant doughnut, with a surface serves as roof and play surface to cover the classroom spaces. Everything is open and the central court serves as a focus point for all the rooms. The school is a very cool project that takes a school's needs for program and makes a form to accomplish it. It's too bad schools here in the states aren't more progressive in this way.
