Buildings are enduring symbols of art and creativity. From the Colosseum to the Great Wall of China, great buildings usually have a huge impact on people.
Looking at the present, between all the skyscrapers, houses and mansions there are a lot of hidden gems that can surprise you. In this collection, we are going to present you with the weirdest buildings in the world.
The Church of Hallgrimur, Iceland
Lutheran church is 244 ft (74.5 m) tall. Its design is said to resemble the lava flows, that have shaped Iceland’s landscape.
WonderWorks is an entertainment center focused on science exhibits with five locations in the United States. Its buildings are commonly built as if they are upside down.
Elephant Tower, Thailand
You may have heard of addressing the elephant in the room, but a trip to Bangkok will have you talking about the elephant in the city.
Crazy House, Vietnam
Looking like something you’d expect to see in Disneyland, Vietnam’s Hằng Nga Guesthouse, or Crazy House. The shape of the guesthouse is meant to look like a giant leafless banyan tree that towers some five storeys overhead.
Atomium – Belgium
This atom-inspired building was originally constructed for the 1958 Brussels World Fair. The structure features nine connected stainless steel-clad spheres, six of which are accessible by the public.
The stainless steel spheres are around 60 feet in diameter.
It serves as a museum and has been named one of Europe’s most bizarre buildings.
India’s Lotus Temple
A visit to New Delhi offers the chance to witness the majestic Lotus Temple.
This Bahá’í House of Worship was designed to look like a lotus flower, but it also strongly resembles Australia’s Sydney Opera House with its offering of giant white sails.
The temple is constructed from white marble and portrays 27 sail-like petals. Like other Bahá’í Houses of Worship, the Lotus Temple is open to all people.
Czech Republic’s Dancing House
Czech Republic’s Dancing House is an oddly shaped building whose two main towers look as though they are dancing together.
The building sits on the site of a former home that was bombed by the Allied powers during WWII.
Today, visitors can take in great views over Prague by heading up to the Dancing House’s elevated terrace lookout area.
The Crooked House, Poland
This dramatically strange building is part of the shopping center and looks as though it is either melting or is being subjected to a crazy photo filter.
Built-in 2004, this 4,000-square-metre oddity of a building was inspired by Polish fairy tales and it houses a number of restaurants, cafes, and specialty shops inside.
Cube House, Netherlands
This set of tilted houses was designed based on the concept of "living as an urban roof". Cubes of conventional houses are tilted by 45 degrees and rest upon hexagon-shaped pylons.
Kansas City Library, USA
The unique “Community Bookshelf” exterior comprised of spines of 22 books were suggested by the residents of Kansas City. Instead of just offering books inside, you’ll find giant gracing the side of the library’s exterior.
