Evaluation

While the surrounding environment gradually becomes urbanized, this kindergarten is reminiscent of the scenery of the village for its vertical log structure and separate building format using local timbers from upstream to downstream processes of construction. This will ensure that children grow up freely in the local wooden architecture against the backdrop of villages and mountains, which will raise small inhabitants who are familiar with the local environment and will lead to making the future of the village.
