Buildings: Beautiful and Bizarre

I love architecture. Houses, office buildings, churches, museums–the beautiful and the bizarre. Just don’t bother me with the boring! What’s that? Haven’t finished your Christmas shopping yet? How about a nice new home or headquarters for your booming business? Here are some lovely prospects–many of them are for sale or for rent!

    These are terrific…and amazing. A few gave me waves of nausea…just looking at them…but somehow the crooked house in Poland speaks to me…just a little ‘off’ and funky. Right up my alley! And is it just me or does the ‘house attack’ image conjure “Wizard of Oz” vibes for anyone else? 😉

    No Boston City Hall? How can you leave out such a superb example of Brutalist architecture? LOL

    Once again you’ve found a topic that forces me to comment. Growing up in Cincinnati, I’ve always been fascinated with art deco design. In college I visited the Union Terminal and all its murals late at night. Later I found other art deco throughout Cincinnati.
    I’ve also been fascinated with Frank Lloyd Wright’s work, tracking down some of his work in Indiana, and touring Fallingwater in Pennsylvania.
    Keep posting different themes. I always enjoy them.

  10. You will love the Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna, Austria. Gustav Klimt, the Austrian painter, who is also from Austria is perhaps more famous, but Friedensreich Hundertwasser should be as well. He not just paint, but designed an apartment complex. I have a feeling it might be right up your alley. I should write more posts about Austria.

    That basket bldg has been haunting me ever since a coworker told me about it, and the price of the baskets the company made ($$$$$).

  15. That’s fun! The upside down houses make me think of E.E. Cummings poem, “anyone lived in a pretty how town.” It must be hard to sleep in those houses!

  16. This is FAB!!! We have “the skinny house” in the next town, very interesting background story. If you’re interested, Google ‘skinny house, Mamaroneck NY’.

    Imagination and ingenuity at work in such architecture. I’d enjoy seeing them all but don’t think I’d put up a Home Sweet Home sign. Thanks for posting these fascinating places!
