Inspired by HC Andersen’s adventurous story of Thumbelina living under the mushrooms, dancing from petal to petal; the kindergarten seeks to express itself cozy and small in scale, allowing the children to feel safe and adventurous in an environment exploring the space; creating an exciting place to learn and play.


Envisioned as a role model in early childhood education and sustainable architecture, the proposed kindergarten is pioneering both architectonically and technologically. Young children growing up in an urban context needs quality outdoor and nature experiences as much as well designed learning areas. The school is not only a shelter for learn and play to happen, but also a safe laboratory and jungle for kids to explore.
