“the ‘LOOP’ kindergarten in tianjin by tokyo and beijing-based practice SAKO architects creates a clear contrast between the industrious apartment-block surroundings and the colorful colosseum of education. not a single sharp corner exists — from the footprint to the window sills, beveled edges make for a kid-friendly environment brought to life with 18 vivid tones that span the spectrum of the color wheel and carry through to the structure. the gradually transforming colors also hold a logistical purpose — they are used by the children to identify different areas in the structure so they do not get lost or confused in a circular building.”
