Located in Karlsruhe, Germany, this incredible animal architecture piece doubles as a wonderfully playful kindergarten. With the building mimicking the shape of a sprawled-out cat, the mouth of the feline creation is where the students enter to get to their studies.

The design is just the type of thing needed to inspire children when they're at the impressionable age of attending kindergarten. The imaginative design was thought up and brought to life by artist Tomi Ungerer and d'Ayla-Suzen Yƶndel. The building includes a dining room, kitchen, coatroom and classrooms. It's important for young children to want to go to school, not just for the social aspect of it, but also to enjoy the creative experiences held within. Having animal architecture such as this feline kindergarten will go a long way to having these children enjoy going to class every day. Stats for Feline-Inspired Buildings Trending: Older & Buzzing
