Still, humanity gives birth to visionaries in other domains as well. And architecture is yet another great field where these bright minds create marvels and change perspectives. Some architects are even responsible for creating masterpieces with an emotional impact on people and can change the way we perceive cities and countries.

Neil M. Denari Architects Foster + Partners Kindergarten Centered Around a Legendary Tree At the Fuji Kindergarten in Japan, Tezuka Architects created a unique environment that, as a tool for learning, promotes freedom of movement. "Ring Around a Tree" is the extension of an existing kindergarten that consists of a wood and transparent glass volume spiraling upward, enveloping a Japanese Zelkova tree. The project creates spaces for play and foreign language instruction, while also providing a fun area for the children to wait for the school bus. Though, to the average adult, the space appears to have just two floors, for the children it has six with some areas being just three feet (one meter) high. Elements like railings and handrails are very slender, while the interior floors are made of wood. Planted more than 50 years ago, the Zelkova tree has quite the storied past. via [Domus]
