Kindergarten Made from Shipping Containers

Design Saitama

For its 50th anniversary, Ogura Asahi Kindergarten in Saitama upcycled stacked shipping containers into an earthquake-resistant and environmentally friendly kindergarten.

These alternative structures were completed in a relatively short amount of time in 2016 by Hibinosekkei + Youji No Shiro, architects who specialize in the construction of children’s facilities. The reconstruction strives to send an educational message to OA kindergarteners about reuse and green living.
