Discussing :: Creative Architecture

Architecture has a purpose, but some buildings are so unusual they are just plain silly. Sure, architects aren’t perfect, but I wonder how they come up with such crazy ideas. Here are some of the weirdest and most unusual buildings on the earth - I promise these aren't Photoshopped. Hope you like it. Olympic Stadium (Montreal Quebec, Canada) Designed for the 1976 Olympic Games, the Olympic Stadium was not completed on time due to a strike by construction workers. The 556 foot leaning tower designed to retract the roof stood half finished until 1987 when the roof was finally completed.

And people wonder why builders and architects don't always get along. I feel for the poor builders that had to build these things. What a mission.

Some of these are amazing indeed, whereas some are.. just fine. In the eye of the beholder indeed!

It is interesting that we're seeing so much focus on sustainable and eco-friendly buildings, yet there isn't really anything other than the Stone House in this list that qualified. List of cool eco-friendly buildings - now that is one that would be nice to see.

Note to people lamenting the fact that we don't have NZ representation on the list, there are plently of cool NZ architechural structures out there! Do a google search...

Also not to forget, a lot of these constructions take an immense amount of money to achieve - not always possible in tiny NZ.

So lets just celebrate the cool talent out there and stop using it to bemoan our own under-achievements.

Stuff like this is what dreams are made of, good on them for making what could be a boring old structure a piece of sculptural art, increasing the function from merely a stadium to a talking point, I mean look how many comments have been made so far, its great! If it goes out of fashion or people hate it, even better! Its a statement in its own right. yeah.

If you want to be noticed,remembered and discussed at a later date, you have to be creative and stand out from the rest.The building must be functionable, economical and be able to blend in with the local architecture and the environment.'
These are awesome examples of left mind creativity.Whooo!!

The Crooked House is my favourite, like something from a Dr Seuss book, and the panoramic link is cool.
