Schools constantly struggle with space shortages, but in the face of tight budgets and budget cuts there is little that many of these institutions can do. Understanding the importance of a comfortable learning environment to the budding mind, Slovenian architect Jure Kotnik came up with a temporary fix to remedy the over-crowding at a local kindergarten. Kotnik transformed three steel shipping containers into a kid-friendly temporary building annex for 14 students, and believe it or not, the construction has proven to become quite the campus gem!
