“…simple closed curves which divide the plane into two regions: an interior and an exterior. in everyday use, the term “circle” may be used interchangeably to refer to either the boundary of the figure, or to the whole figure including its interior; in strict technical usage, the circle is the former and the latter is called a disk.”

tezuka architects, fuji kindergarten (2007)

 

let’ s be clear: this is not a circle.  but its close.  maybe it was last weeks posts about circles, and spirals and u, but i have noticed a lot of circles in contemporary architecture.  see here, here, here, here, here, and i’m sure many more places.  are we slowly moving back to pure euclidean geometry?

anyways, this building is more than just a squished circle.  its a park on top of a kindergarten.
