It makes you wonder what these folks were thinking of when they built these
structures. I like most of them and am pleased that there are enough
mavericks in the world to create these one of a kind structures. But some
of them are too weird even for me.
They missed the new Taubman Museum in downtown Roanoke, VA too. Talk
about out of place. I think two out of three Roanokers don't know
whether to shoot the architect or themselves after looking at it.
Kind of rough stuff for a guy who is still have trouble getting used
to Queen Anee Victorians.
I did like that Indian houseboat, though.
Thanks for those. There are the creative ones and then there are the
'trying-to-be-different' ones; those usually fail... and then there
are the plug-ugly ones.
All were interesting.
I appreciate it when anybody builds something outside of the box.
The one that I liked was 43. National Theatre (Beijing, China) in part
ii. Generally, I don't like artsy fartsy buildings. I know I'd hate to
have to run a new phone line, cable line, or repair about anything in
most of those clap traps. Not that I don't appreciate the work and
artiness off the owners/builders/architects but I'm far happier looking
at it than having to build or live in any of it.

The one in North Korea has never been completed. It was apparently to be
a monument to the first dictator. However, it has never been finished and
is not expected to ever be habitable. The estimated cost to finish it
would be 10% of North Korea's GDP.

There was one from Russia with an interesting typo - the Wooden
Gagster House. They really meant the Wooden Gangster House, as it was
built by a notorious gangster, but gagster is also fitting.
The NeverWas Haul is listed as Berkley, CA, but the picture was taken
at Burning Man in the Nevada desert.
The Gehry's Stata Center at MIT is the subject of a $300 million
Heh, heh. I didn't need any more reasons not to go to Pigeon Forge,
but that structure gave me one.
You mean pancake houses, go kart tracks, 5 for $2 t-shirt shops and "as seen
on TV" stores aren't enough of a draw for you??? what kind of person *are*
