the cat-shaped kindergarten

By

It’s hard to imagine any student at Kindergarten Die Katze dragging their heels in the morning. Given the option, we’re sure every kid would prefer to play in a cat-shaped school than stay at home all day. Designed by artist Tomi Ungerer and architect Ayla-Suzan Yndel, Kindergarten Die Katze is a quirky steel building in Wolfartsweier, Germany, where little ones enter through the ‘mouth’ of a crouching cat and exit via a tail-shaped slide at the rear (if only all buildings were this fun). Despite the left-of-centre exterior, the kinder looks and functions pretty normally on the inside – it is a school, after all.
