‘Baby Bunker’.

The building is designed in response to the crisis of birthrates in Japan and children becoming a scarce ‘natural resource.’ Inspired by Froebel Block toys, the daycare centre that reinforces Japanese educational attitudes that teach children to respect, and even love, seismic activity as an experience. Constructed from hybrid concrete and silicon materials, under tremors the building will crack to reveal luminous colurful and soft materials, augmenting a playscape of blocks at a smaller scale.
