In Karlsruhe, Germany, the kids who attend Kindergarten Wolfartsweier must contend with the serious business of walking straight into the mouth of a cat everyday. Artist Tomi Ungerer and architect d’Ayla-Suzan Yöndel are behind the brilliant kindergarten building design of a kitty in a sphinx-like pose.

It’s so cool, the cat’s tail at the back of the building forms a metal playground slide. We’re surprised this isn’t in Japan instead.
