Photos: Buildings Shaped Like Animals

This ingenious preschool is so adorable that it makes any work seem like play. Artist Tomi Ungerer and architect Ayla Suzan Yöndel designed it so that children enter through the cat’s mouth, where the classrooms and cafeteria are located, and exit into the backyard via a slippery dip for a tail.

There are lots of interesting and cool buildings around the world but today I’m going to share photos of some animal shaped buildings.

This is called zoomorphic architecture.

I like the cat shaped kindergarten building (above photo) the most, it is so cute and during an emergency we could slide down the tail of the cat to exit the building.

Below are buildings in shapes of Giant Koala, Lucy The Elephant, Turtle in a Storm trooper outfit and lot’s more.
