COBY Preschool SekimachiBack to Projects list
A semi-exterior walkway constructed from wisteria trellises, louvers, and vining plants forms the interface between this preschool and the long, narrow road alongside it. The children are visible through this green screen, adding liveliness to the neighborhood. The playground is designed to draw out their curiosity and make them want to run around, with features including a multilevel lawn, stone slope, low but sheer “cliffs,” running water, cloud-like netting, and a Tarzan rope. We hope that this playground modeled on nature will continue to evolve as the children customize it for themselves.
