Strange and Amazing Buildings of the World

Found an interesting collection of unique architecture posted on a website... "50 Strange Buildings of the World" part one & part two Some of them aren't really strange at all, but rather fantastic examples of what extra cash and large ego can buy: celebrity architects. Which is great, why not. Some of the buildings included in the assortment are indeed strange. Or ugly. Or not really deserving anything other than existing simply because they exist. Either way, and in time for Halloween, you should take a look at the links!

I'll include a few here so you can get an idea of what to expect. This first one is of the British Eden Project and makes me think the valley is having a seizure (i love it):

This second project is of the Edificio Mirador in Madrid, Spain and makes me think "why not?":

This final project is of the Blur Building (Yverdon-les-Bainz, Switzerland) and proves that once again, stuff in Switzerland is pretty damn cool:
