A friend of mine forwarded this photo to me and I quickly fell in love with the concept. I dream about having a classroom in the middle of a forest for children, with walls that could be moved, windows that could be opened or closed,  and roofs that allow the natural light in. Or is it again indoorizing children? A false assumption that they're outdoors, in nature while they're actually in a box? Or can we use the concept but allow a natural osmosis between indoor and outdoor, where the border, the line, is blurred? And the day can flow naturally between these two spaces.

I know in Forest Kindergartens, children start and spend the whole day outdoors, but the weather can be a challenge. Not all families and school districts endorse that.  Can this be a possibility to address their concerns?
