The 1,400-square-meter co-ed kindergarten serves up to 120 students, all younger than three years old. The building is mostly transparent and comprises glazed facades punctuated at even intervals by slat-like wood frames.

When viewed from one end of the building, the stacked frames create the beautiful illusion of an endless cave. Related: UTAA Carves a Wooden Ribbed...
