Designing for Education: Compendium of Exemplary Educational Facilities 2011 showcases over 60 recently built or refurbished educational facilities from 28 countries. Collectively, these projects demonstrate state-of-the-art design in this field and each one is lavishly illustrated with colour photos, plans and descriptions.

The individual chapters – which are in higher resolution format – are available on the OECD iLibrary.

One of the largest pre-primary facilities in Japan, the kindergarten can accommodate more than 600 children, providing welcome capacity in a city that has a long waiting list for nursery places.
