17 Examples Of Bizarre Buildings You Can’t Help But Stop By.

What is architecture if not the expression of the personality of the person who designs a building? Often, for specific needs or for reasons of functionality, designers and planners are forced to make compromises, proposing buildings that do not necessarily shine with their personality, but when their work tools are free to express all their creativity. , we can find ourselves in front of real wonders.

We’re talking about all those cases where practicality, aesthetics, and artistry come together, or where aesthetics can steer everything, at the cost of making a building quirky, but no less fascinating. Architects and artists may have let their imaginations run wild in designing these buildings, but a fair amount of eccentricity is often required, especially to grab attention and deliver something unforgettable. The constructions that we have gathered below represent this category: examples of architectural originality from all over the world. Are you ready to discover them?
