Unique architecture from around the globe
I have always been facinated by architecture and design, in high school I took several drafting classes and I was rather good, I suppose I thought that would be my career path. Instead I became a writer, what was I thinking right? Anyway I still have that passion so I thought I would put together a hub with some of the strangest homes I have found on the planet.
In the first picture below are London,U.K's famous thin house. There are several of these found around the world, I like this one best.
This next house designed by Dr. Dang Viet Nga, this is a crazy house literally they call it the crazy house, just look at it.This house was formally called Hang Nga Villa, and was built in the ‘90s.The Villa has 10 different themed rooms at the moment, charging from $10 up to $45. There's no fan, no phone, no TV, and no Internet access in rooms, but you'll survive, believe me it worth it. It’s a sightseeing spot, as well as a mini guesthouse, that you don’t see it in any other part of the world. Some people might think that Dr. Nga’s idea was, in fact, inspired by Gaudi’s architecture, but far from the standard and quality to be recognized. it is a neat peice of art as well as architecture.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a bubble? Located in Tourettes-sur-Loup, France, and was designed by the Hungarian architect Antti Lovag. At 35 years old, it has already been listed by the French ministry of culture as an historic monument. Personally I think it just looks totally cool.
Check out this neat house, it is often refered to as the pod house or mushroom house. This house is located in Rodchester, New York, very cool.
I saw this house in a documentry a long time ago, it's a monolithic dome home built under ground. Located in Ferris, Texas and designed by Al Schwarz the Robot Ranch contains 7 interconnected monolithic domes providing 4,144 sq ft of living space. It's awesome nd eco friendly...
Located in Sopot, Poland at Bohaterów Monte Cassino Street the Crooked House was constructed in 2003 based off of drawings from Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg. This place looks like it should be in a disney movie, it is so cool. But don't worry it'snot all crooked inside...or is it???
