1)Dancing building (Prague, Czech, republic)

The Dancing House is found in Prague, Czech Republic. It is the term coined by the locals to the Nationale-Nederlanden building that was designed by architect Vlado Milunic along with Frank Gehry. The building was built from 1992 to 1996.

The unique design of a bent building was very nontraditional during their time and took a lot of criticism from the public. However, the Czech president Vaclav Havel gave his full support to the project, stating that this can be a center for the arts and culture in the coming years.

Its original name was supposed to be Fred and Ginger, after the famous dancers Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. But the building starting getting nicknames from the locals, one of the most courageous being the Drunk House. Nowadays, the building houses various multinational firms and some of Prague’s top restaurants.2)the crooked house (sopot, Poland)

The Crooked House is a very unusual house found in Sopot, Poland. It was designed by Szotynscy Zaleski and was built in 2004. In erecting this piece of architecture, he was inspired children’s drawing books. Don’t be so shocked if you’ll find similarities between Jan Marcin Szancer fairytales drawing books or Per Dahlberg’s artworks and Zaleski’s Crooked House. These were the main sources of inspiration for the Crooked House.

The structure has three stories and is built amongst a row of houses in Bohaterow Monte Cassino Street. It looks as if it was the most “tired” design of house in the world, but there are some that say that it looks like it is melted. 3)corpus museum (A44 highway,Netherlands)

indubitably one of the most awkward museums the Netherlands hosts. And when it comes to offbeat museums, the Low Countries sure have plenty to offer. The building is in fact a 35 meters high transparent structure that contours half of a sitting human body. Inside, fiberglass is used to resemble the real inside of a human being body.

Exploring this unusual museum is definitely an educational journey, since it will answer questions such as “Why do I have to sleep?” or “What happens when I sneeze?”. The unique experience is provided by the latest imagery technologies, which use fascinating sounds and 3D effects to explain all the aspects of a functional human body. 4)The basket building ( Ohio, united states)

The Basket Building from Ohio, United States is the headquarters of Longaberger Basket Company. It is a replica of Longaberger’s medium market basket, magnified 160 times. It is 192 feet long and 126 feet wide at the basis, while on the roof it is 208 feet long and 142 feet wide. It is a delight to look at the giant basket at night as the windows, supposedly the holes of the basket, light up.


Dave Longaberger is the founder of the company and he was the one who envisioned having a giant basket as the headquarters of his company. It shortly became an iconic symbol of their company as well as one of the most popular office buildings in the world. It is, after all, the largest basket on the planet!. 5)wonder work's (pigeon forge, united states)

Wonderworks is Tennessee’s number one attraction. It is a museum that houses many different interactive modules that will trick one’s mind and body. Its ultimate purpose is to serve as a great educational tool for children and for adults as well.

However, Wonderworks is more than just a museum and more than just a normal attraction. When you arrive at Wonderworks, only seeing the sight of this remarkable structure will make your jaw drop. The façade of the museum is an upside down tilted structure, therefore when you will start your adventure you will have to be inverted as well. It is a perfect start to a day that will be filled with mind boggling adventures.6)House attack (Vienna, Austrian)

Erwin Wurm, a renowned Austrian artist, created House Attack in 2008, a house installed to be hanging upside down on Museum Moderner Kunst’s external façade. He feels that this is a symbol of families all over the world being plunged into everyday worries and challenges. The technical purpose of this project is to inspire the architects all over the world. It stands for a more obvious broadening of the architectural thinking that should not bound within the so-called “normal” limits.

For Erwin Wurm, anything can be a sculpture such as actions, instructions or thoughts. He is an artist that takes simple concepts then adds physical deformations to trick the eye and the mind.


Thanks 🙏 for your attention.
