Kuhonji Kodomoen is a certified children’s preschool in the central district of Iwaki City in Fukushima Prefecture. The design aims to create an environment where the community can look after the children’s growth as they study and play under one big roof. The nursery rooms (where the children study) are arranged to face the town. The building is surrounded by sloped grounds with a deck and outdoor play area, so the children can feel the town’s close presence. The school is visible from various points across the town, and was designed so scenes of the children’s daily growth will spread through the community. The children are the main focus. We hope that scenes of them smiling and laughing emanate from the school, becoming a bright hope for Iwaki’s revival.
