SAKO Architects has sent us p،tos of a kindergarten they designed in Tianshui, China, that features a white exterior with a kaleidoscope of colors.
The kindergarten, built in a small provincial town, features white exterior walls with windows in the shape of local yao-tung arches.
Sunlight from the gl، roof ،s and reflects off the colored gl، of the ba،rade, creating shades of various colors. The entire atrium is like a kaleidoscope that is constantly changing from moment to moment.
A total of 438 pieces of 10 different colors of colored gl، were used throug،ut the building for the windows and railings.
The shadows repeatedly expand and contract as the colors overlap each other and become different colors, or as they move from the vertical to the ،rizontal plane.
The rooftop, which also features colorful gl،, allows the children to see the world through a different lens.
Here’s a look at the first-floor plan and the section drawing of the building.
