The ‘MORIUMIUS-LUSAIL’ centre is a modern sustainable learning centre for children that will provide an engaging learning environment for children to learn about the fishing, manufacturing, agriculture, forestry, cooking, and IT industries, initially in Japan, before the centre embarks on an ambitious global strategy. Housed on the grounds of a 92-year-old abandoned wooden Japanese school that is being fully renovated in time for its summer opening, the centre will focus on a ‘stay, eat, experience’ concept. A grant for the renovation of the old Kuwahama elementary school in Ishinomaki Ogatsu will modernise the external structure, as well as allowing for classrooms, and staff rooms are transformed into eating, sleeping, and learning spaces.
