This school extension in the city of Kufstein in Tyrol, Austria speaks in metaphors. The crinkled wall design on the side of the building comments on the trial and error process of learning.

Imagine you are writing an essay and you can't seem to get the words right. The idea of crumpling up rough drafts and disposing of them is incorporated into this school extension. The design reflects the process of testing ideas and this makes it unique and innovative.

Designed by Austrian artist Karl-Heinz Klopf and Weisflecker Architecture, the building is a peculiar landmark of the city and if you look closely you will see that every detail was purposefully designed to look chaotic and disrupted. This clever design is not only creative but appropriate for the building it was incorporated into.
