Polish architect designs modular ‘kids city’ kindergarten using shipping container frames

Forget the retrofit of a shipping container into a building for one moment. Designboom showcases the plans of Polish architect Adam Wiercinski to use just the recycled frames of containers to construct a “kids city.”

The facility will house a kindergarten, but the layout is designed to be a little model city, with a main street, alleys, and connected common spaces scattered with houses between them.

Recycled container frames will act as the whole building’s base, and structures built inside the frame will mimic how many children imagine buildings when they are drawing: a simple structure with a triangular top on a square.

Designboom reports that the complex will be filled with terraces and gardens where children can learn basic biology. Container frames are organized in a two-story grid that allows different sizing and modularity so that the building can easily be adapted to different needs as the school develops.
