Italian Kindergarten in the Style of Okuda San Miguel
Faces, bodies and eyes making the dull walls fun for kids and their parents
It seems that Okuda San Miguel is never tired. While we did not have enough time to catch up admiring on his Moroccan church beautification, he is already on his new task. This is the local kindergarten of Acugnano, a small northern Italian town, located an hour’s drive from Venice, decorated by Okuda and his helping hand Antonyo Marest. They incorporated the famous colorful geometrical shapes into the architecture of the building, using it to make human and animal shapes – faces, bodies and eyes making the dull walls fun for kids and their parents, and the town beautiful from an aerial view. Combining traditional historic symbols and a contemporary artistic expression, the walls are now super cool. The lucky kids can now dwell in and around the lively rainbow kindergarten, connected to the town and the surrounding nature at the same time.
