Architect Junya Ishigami designed partitions with assorted curving shapes for the cloud-inspired interior of this nursery, located inside a high-rise in Atsugi.
Ishigami – a Tokyo-based architect known for his minimal approach – sought to recreate the feeling of walking in the clouds with his design for the Cloud Garden day care and child support centre. “I like to look at the clouds,” explained Ishigami. “Clouds change their form at will, with a certain rationality. Moreover, they are all white and fluffy, having both a sense of unity and some consistency. And they are vast. I have been thinking recently about whether it is possible to think of architecture in such an atmosphere,” he added.
