A kinder­garten in Viet­nam, Chuon Chuon Kim 2 is a mar­velous piece of ar­chi­tec­ture and in­ge­nu­ity. It is de­signed by Kien­truc o in 2017. This old town­house bears no re­sem­blance to its for­mer self. The ar­chi­tects at Kien­truc o com­pletely trans­formed it. A com­mon prac­tice in a de­vel­op­ing coun­try is to take an old, ex­ist­ing build­ing and give it a new iden­tity. The build­ing does not look like a school. It is a whim­si­cal build­ing with ex­posed brick walls. The ar­chi­tects say the sim­i­lar­ity with a Lego build­ing is un­canny. The brick ar­range­ment in each sec­tion varies. Each floor is ar­ranged dif­fer­ently to en­able the chil­dren to be more aware and re­cep­tive of their sur­round­ings. The use of the bright and sunny yel­low and vi­brant orange against the brick red makes it an in­ter­ac­tive space.
