Description(English) Kawaii is the design for a cram school in Kobe city, Japan. Situated along a busy shopping street, the design takes advantage of the transparent glass facade to display its spaces and advertises for the school. the high density of girls high schools in this area results on that students using this facility will be mostly female students. The rooms along the facade are pentagon shaped in reference to the child books gabled roof houses, with colorful backgrounds. the pentagons was then slightly deformed to add more "kawaii" (cute) aspect to the forms fitting the Japanese teenage girls taste.
Description(Native) 建物はたくさんの学生たちが行き交う通学路に面しており、全面ガラス張りであったため、インテリアデザインの与える印象が生徒獲得数に大きく影響すると予想された。 また、女子校密集地域であることから、そのほとんどが女子学生になると想定されたため、設計に際し、より女生徒達に受け入れられやすい、女性好みの"KAWAII"デザインを意識して設計を進めた。"KAWAII"という言葉は日本人が持つ独特の概念であり、時折"cute"と英訳されるが、完全に他の言語に訳すことは不可能であると言われている。この"KAWAII"世界の創出を試み、絵本に登場する、三角屋根の家の形、ガラス越しに見える全ての部屋に、この五角形を適用することにした。 更にその五角形を少し崩して不整形な形にすることで、形に「不完全さ」「未熟さ」を与え、"KAWAII"世界を更に強調した。
