There are millions of architectural styles in the world people admire. But some really strange, admirable buildings are yet to be discovered. Below is a collection of odd, but beautiful buildings around the world.
1. The Device to Root Out Evil, British Columbia, Canada.
This is not a result of any natural disaster, it is specially designed to look like this. This building is located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Isn’t it amazing?
2. Expo Zaragoza 2008, Pabellon de Aragon.
This isn’t a pile of useless blocks. This amazing building is Pabellón de Aragón, found in Spain. In this building, expo Zaragoza was held, so it is more renowned by that name.
3. Piano House, Huainan, China.
This truly captivating structure isn’t a piano & violin for a giant. Built in 2007, this building is located in Huainan China. The whole structure of the piano is a building, which is accessed via escalators inside the glass violin. I think this is perfect house for pop stars.
4. Puzzling World ,Lake Wanaka, Otago, New Zealand.
Stuart Landsborough’s Puzzling World is a large “puzzling café” where guests try out several puzzles. It is a famous tourist attraction near Wanaka, New Zealand.
5. The Crooked House – Sopot, Poland.
This building looks like an irregular reflection from a funhouse mirror. Built in 2004, it is approximately 4,000 sq m in size, and is part of the Rezydent shopping center.
6. Cubic Houses Rotterdam, Netherlands.
These cube structures are actually houses tilted 45 degrees to become the world’s first cube-shaped homes. Inside, the houses are divided into three levels, accessed via a narrow staircase. The lower level is triangular, used as a living room. The middle level can be used for bedrooms, and the highest level is a spare area, to do whatever you want.
7. Snail House – Sofia, Bulgaria.
This giant snail is a five-story family home, with horns on its head and butterflies on its back. The construction of this house lasted almost 10 years, so you can imagine the effort. The House has already become one of the most popular attractions in Sofia.
8. Experience Music Project – Seattle, USA.
This not too clearly defined mess is a museum of music history, sited near the Space Needle. The structure contains 140,000 sq ft, with a 35,000-sq ft footprint. Forbes magazine called it one of the world’s 10 ugliest buildings.
9. Kansas City Public Library – Kansas City, USA.
These are giant people’s books (just kidding). This building is in Kansas City, Missouri, USA. But it is not a library, it is a parking garage.
10. The Basket Building – Ohio, USA.
This basket building is owned by America’s famous basket manufacturer, Longaberger Basket Company. It is admirable, especially at night. It is one huge basket that produces thousands of smaller baskets daily.
11. Robert Bruno’s Steel House, Lubbock, Texas.
This amazing piece of architecture was owned by Robert Bruno. He labored for decades to build one of the World’s most striking houses, but died before he could complete it. Is there a way to preserve his work?
