That’s exactly what you are likely to say when you see the strangest, most bizarre buildings in the world, albeit with eye-popping awe and fascination. In a world that is teeming with boring, uninspiring concrete eyesores, these buildings, sprawled across different parts of the globe, inject the architectural firmament with verve and enthusiasm. So if you are planning to buy or construct a home of your own, and do not have imagination in your DNA, then a sneak peak at this motley group is certain to send your creativity soaring.
While the Crooked House in Sopot, Poland, inspired by the works of legendary Polish artist, Jan Marcin Szancer and Swedish painter, Per Dahlberg, may not inspire you to think straight; the Forest Spiral or Waldspirale house in Darmstadt, Germany will give you new lessons in geometry with its jagged edges and irregular shapes. You will get a basket full of creative ideas from the $30 million market basket office building of the Longaberger Basket Company in Newark, Ohio. Guess the people behind the Kansas City Public Library in Missouri, United States took 19th century American author Henry Ward Beecher opinion’s about the unique ability of ‘books to furnish a house beautifully’, rather too seriously – they got books to construct the library itself. Just travel further north, and you will find the cube forming the building blocks of Habitat 67 in Montreal, Canada.
So is your house going to form part of this list?
