The most unusual architectural projects

We have prepared for you a list of the most unusual architectural projects: from “the curve house” in Poland to an office building in the form of picnic baskets in the United States.

Aussie Ian Strange recently completed his project for the Biennial of Australian Art: the house that fell from the sky, referring the audience to the story of the wizard of Oz. Currently creative work can be seen around the Art gallery of South Australia. Ian Strange has tried to make the house as realistic as possible, after even the smallest details.

French architect and designer Jean-François Fourtou loves to surprise the audience with their extraordinary ideas. For example, in the framework of the project titled “fallen from the sky” (Morocco) he designed upside-down house. Incidentally, within this structure the viewer enters this tale is another, inverted world!

If we talk about the most unique hotels in the world, the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore will be headed this list, because it is here that visitors can swim in the pool, which is located at a great height! When viewed from a distance, sandalsseating that the water just flows down from the roof of the building, and the visitors threatened to fall out. Really, it’s not. Water flows into the catchment.

April 5, 2013 in carlsbad, California, opened Legoland — every child’s dream! Plunge into a world made of Lego bricks will be available to everyone. The three-storey building is 250 full living rooms. Plus, around the perimeter of the calving you can find a lot of the big statues, entirely from Lego bricks!

Het Arresthuis — a luxury hotel, which is located in the Netherlands. The main feature — it is not expensive accommodation, and not even a unique design (although… to some extent it can be called unique), and the fact that in the 19th century it was a real prison! Of course, she no longer functioned. A large investor decided to create something special. So he came up with the idea to rebuild a terrible prison in a luxury hotel. The task for the designers, architects and planners was not fully erase the dark past, changing the old building and to build a prison on the basis of a fully featured hotel. And really, if you look at the corridor Het Arresthuis, we are sure to notice the prison features: stairs and layout of the rooms.

If you are tired of the monotonous appearance of the office building in which you have to go to work, then you definitely need to move to Newark, United States, Ohio. There you can rent an office in a building that one to one look like a picnic basket! Next to it, any person will feel like the ant that got on the rest of the people. The creators and designers of office buildings with an unusual architecture is the Longaberger Company.

With a light hand two owners of the old water tower in Central London, Leigh Osborne and Graham Voce have turned the 19th century into a modern home. Just a few months of design and construction — the old water tower was transformed beyond recognition, becoming the most unique and unusual building in all of England…

Some houses are very boring. They are built on a standard architectural projects. Some amaze with their height, some, on the contrary, their tiny size. But the house in the Polish town under the name of Sopot is striking in its unusual shape. The fact that the house was built in the truest sense of the word curves!
