【Kodomochounaikai Office】
Kodomochounaikai Office is a group of architects and designers who are involved in the design of various “objects, things and communications” such as architecture, products, advertising, web, fashion, and education. They believe that the power to create “objects, things and communication” refers to soft “intelligence and sensibility” that discovers issues and solves problems creatively.
“Design” has nurtured their own intelligence and sensibility.
The workshop for children called “Kodomochounaikai” started with the aim of utilizing the educational ability of design in children’s education.
