Designing a building is not just a project, it is the legacy that the architect will leave to the world. It will be his footprint in history and it may make him famous or infamous. If this sound a bit over dramatic, just think about the sever wonders of the world. They were all some kind of a building structure. And what do you picture when someone mentions Paris? The Eiffel Tower is the first thing that pops to mind, isn’t it? These are just a few examples.
Well, these architects certainly made a mark, only it wasn’t for the grandeur or beauty of their building designs, but rather for their weirdness. Some of them look like they’re about to tumble over, others look like something a kid would imagine and some simply can’t be explained with words. And the madness is not restricted to one area, it happens all over the world.
If you still don’t think is that bad, take a look at these works of architectural art.
