Technical University of Munich

In the Technical University of Munich, also known as TUM, they sure know how to make students enjoy their days at school. Instead of using regular stairs they have installed two giant tubes or better said slides from the 4th floor to the ground floor of their Faculty building for Math and Computer Science.

The students can basically get out of their class in no time; No full elevators or never-ending stairs, just two gigantic tubes you can slide down on, it’s almost like being in an amusement park.

The geniuses behind this work are the German artists Johannes Brunner and Raimund Ritz. They wanted the slides to look like a parabola because after all it is a Mathematics Faculty. Besides, the tubes are something fresh and fun for the students so they can have more pleasure coming to classes.
