Weird Architecture: 18 Buildings that go beyond Architecture


At the time of “Architecture of the image”, that, first of all, aims to become famous on the web and in magazines, you have to expect to come across Weird Architecture – buildings whose highly eccentric intent is to emphasize any particularity to succeed in getting noticed.

Research of uniqueness at all costs, however, often leads to something that is no longer architecture, or rather, it is no more “only” a building. Art and the forms of representation come together with the art of building to create very weird Architecture.
