New Preschool Is Designed to Accumulate Puddles Whenever It Rains

(Photo: Hibino Sekkei)

The excess water in the atrium isn’t an accident, but the result of intentional design. It's a preschool, so it could be only great fun to have puddles for water play right next to the classrooms.

Here is Dia-ichi Yochien, a new school in Kumamoto City, Japan. Architect Taku Hibino says that the open area can serve several purposes, including as a softball field during the summer and an ice skating rink during the winter. You can see more photos at Spoon & Tamago.

I don't know if it is true for this grade level, but Japanese students in high school change from their street shoes into 'indoor shoes' when they get to school. It's a common Anime scene for the main character to find a note in his or her shoe locker (a love note, or a letter of challenge to fight).
