the cat-shaped kindergarten


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.
