When engineered discovered that the aging structure that housed the “OA Kindergarten” in Japan ’s Saitama Prefecture wasn’t likely to withstand a major earthquake, they decided to give it an eco-friendly update. The new, resilient structure can stand up to shaking and was made out of a collection of stacked shipping containers , along with parts of the original structure. Japan-based  Hibino Sekkei and Youji no Shiro were tapped to create the safe, innovative new space.
