weird architecture

I like weird art.  I also like weird architecture.  Look at the creativity below.  No cookie cutter here!  Which are you drawn to?


  1.  Vienna Museum of Modern Art (MUMOK):  officially on the list of the strangest buildings in the world due to the 'House Attack' by famous Austrian sculptor Erin Wurm.  

  2. Dancing House of Ginger & Fred is the nickname given to the Nationale-Nederlanden building in Prague.  It was designed by Croatian-Czech architect Vlado Milunić in cooperation with renowned Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry.

  3. Casa de America:  This would technically qualify as a sculpture, but I couldn't resist the whimsical work of Madrid based artist Alicia-Martín.  5,000 books spill out like a waterfall of this traditional building in Madrid.  I love books, and I love the contrast.

  4. Montaña Mágica Lodge: a unique rainforest hotel in Chile hidden deep in a nature reserve shaped like a volcano.  Accessible only by the swinging rope bridge.

  5. Treehotel:  Located 60 kilometers south of the Arctic circle in Sweden, this stunning hide out, designed by Tham & Videgard architects, is made of light weight aluminum which is hung around the base of a single tree.

  6. Heydar Aliyev Center:  If you are familiar with architect Zaha Hadid, you will know right away that the graceful curves of this dazzling building in Azerbaijan are hers.  This structure will host the former soviet nation's cultural programs and looks like glossy white ribbons.
