30 Of The Most Unusual Buildings From All Over The World

Published 3 years ago

Everyone can design a box with some windows and call it a house – but it takes a skilled architect to design a building that not only meets the client’s requirements and functions well but also looks aesthetically pleasing. However, sometimes architects let their imaginations run a little too wild, and end up producing buildings that could best be described as simply “bizarre”.

Inspired by the weirdest architectural creations from all over the world, someone started a whole subreddit dedicated entirely to them. It’s called Bizarre Buildings, and its 131k+ members regularly share the most odd and funny buildings they managed to spot – check it out in the gallery below! And if crazy architecture is your thing, make sure to read our earlier post about the works of Frank Gehry here!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
