Looking like something straight out of a movie, this kindergarten in Tianshui, China boasts 483 pieces of coloured glass and resembles a giant, rotating kaleidoscope. This school, which really is more of a piece of art, was designed by SAKO Architects, an architecture firm by the renowned Japanese architect Keiichiro Sako, based in Beijing.
The coloured glass not only peppers the windows but also the doors and handrails—which you will discover as you continue to traverse deeper into the building. With a touch of natural sunlight, the awe of this multi-coloured beauty is brought to life.
The kindergarten boasts rows and rows of high, arched windows and oval balconies—an unorthodox but charming way to embellish a space for early childhood learning. The young students have ample space to tumble and play, including a grass-adorned outdoor lawn on the balcony that promotes against an all-too-scenic backdrop.
We don’t know about you, but we’ve got a feeling that school will definitely be less of a bore at a place this beautiful.
