Nothing is eternal

Architecture is one of the most fabulous creative art where there is a lot of passion, utility, development, innovation as well as profit. Day by day almost every country are getting developed by setting up varieties of architectural projects. You may have visited many constructions and modern designed buildings like malls, museums, historical monuments, towers, etc., but have you ever attended any of the following strangest buildings in the world? Being detected and approved by more than 80% population of the world, the following architectural structures have been considered as the strangest building in the world.

 1. Dancing Building of the Czech Republic

 The name as it suggests is something which looks like the building is hugging each other to dance. This is also known as “Fred and Ginger” and is located in Prague, Czech Republic. This excellent architectural work is highly charming and romantic and was designed by Vlado Milunic and Frank Gehry.

 2. The Crooked House of Poland

Doesn’t the name sound odd? This famous architectural building was designed in the year 2003 while two architects named Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg got inspired from the cartoon movies for which the name was given as “Crooked.” The design of the building is somewhat strange but beautiful at the same time.

 3. Stone House of Portugal

This famous and peculiar piece of work was built just in the similar pattern of the home of the Flinestone where the whole building stands in between two rocks. This building also has historical evidence. Due to the sequence of attacks by vandals and dacoits, the door and windows of the building were made bulletproofed and still is the same. Stone house in Portugal resembles the famous home of the Flintstones. 

4. Cathedral of Brasilia of Brazil

Oscar Niemeyer designed this structure, and it was the residence of the Archdiocese of Brasilia. The building is famous for its extreme concrete set up as 16 columns of 90 tons concrete each was used to build. The excellence and unique look of the building make it worth seeing at least once in your life.

5. Forest Spiral – Hundertwasser Building of Germany

This is again a strange and beautiful piece of work with a green roof and spiral shape. The design is exceptionally stylish, and you can have a cozy feeling when you enter into it. The name of the building was given after the name of the designer Friedensreich Hundertwasser and is worth a visit. 

6. The Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum, Brazil

Oscar Niemeyer designed this excellent piece of master artists in the year 1996, and the importance of this architecture is its ability to make you feel as if you are in a different world. The height of the building is 16 meters with a diameter of 50 meters. People from all over the world come to visit this place.
