Under the Hood: Kindergarten in Okazaki

The kindergarten of the Nara siblings in Okazaki in central Japan urgently needed an extension.”Demolish and rebuild” would have been an obvious option. However, Ma Yansong and his architecture studio MAD decided to leave the wooden skeleton of the previous building as a playhouse in the middle of the new daycare center.
