20 Funny And Strange Architectural Wonders
Dancing House—Prague, Czech Republic
Prague is known for its super traditional architecture. So imagine someone designing a building that curves and leans in the middle on one side. Prague residents have nicknamed it “Ginger-and-Fred,” after the famous dancing duo, Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. It’s not hard to see why.
Kansas City Public Library—Kansas City, Missouri
Anyone who loves to read usually loves libraries, right? Well, how about a library that actually looks like a shelf full of classics? Definitely not your average brick-and-stone portal to literary adventure.
The Piano House—Anhui, China
This strange-yet-beautiful structure is a musician’s dream. Imagine you’re a musician and you live in something as crazy-looking, yet inspiring. You likely wouldn’t want to leave its confines for all the music your dwelling feeds into your creative brain.
Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, Spain
Built by Frank Gehry, this unusual museum structure was, believe it or not, erected on a very tight schedule and budget. It’s hard to imagine, given the size and overall curved structure of the place, but because of its curved walls, it’s one of the most talked about modern museums.
