When I think about kindergarten, I would want to introducing the nature into the school. In order to achieve that, I chose botanical garden as my secondary program. The main concept of arranging different programs is having the garden on the top, and the school on the bottom. The other concept is decreasing the boundary between the indoor and outdoor. School does not have exterior envelope, only the trusses are used to give a hint of the overall form. Also, very minimal doors are used in the school.
