45 of the Strangest and Most Unique Buildings From All Over the World

These Bizarre Buildings Are Totally Out of the Box!

Buildings and houses around the world don’t always follow traditional designs. Sometimes, the architects decide to take a different route and end up creating bizarre structures that delight and puzzle the onlookers, all at once. Some of these buildings are innovative and decorative, while some actually have people living in them. Here are some such wacky and unusual buildings that’ll make you scratch your head.

King Alfred’s Tower

King Alfred’s Tower in Somerset, England is more decorative than anything. The structure is named after Alfred the Great, who won a battle there.

Giving off serious Rapunzel vibes, the castle’s topmost level can be reached through a spiral staircase. With stunning views to feast your eyes on, this castle is a must-visit for all tourists. It’s also a testament to how some buildings serve no purpose other than just being a mark of success and victory.

The Crooked House

Built in 1765, the crooked house is a building that’s – as the name suggests – crooked. Standing on a mine shaft, it has slightly sunk to one side over time due to mining practices and it now appears lopsided.

The crooked house is actually a place where people can socialize in the UK and is a favorite among tourists and locals alike. Be careful though, if you suffer from vertigo, this building might not be the one you want to step in.

Hằng Nga Guesthouse, Vietnam

The giant insect-like structure houses a two-story restaurant inside. Situated next to a biking track, it’s a definite moment of double-take for all riders when they lay their eyes on this weird mess.

Keret House, Poland

Squeezed in between two buildings, this building is in the center of Warsaw and is an iconic tourist destination in the city. If you’re ever in the city and need a reason to appreciate open spaces, this place might just give you a reason to do so.

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel, Florida

Hard Rocks are all over the world. The hotel chain is known for being amazing, hip, and all-around one of the most trusted hotels. But none of them embody the spirit of Rock as well as their hotel in Florida.

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel, Florida

Shaped like a guitar, the hotel lights up in multiple colors and truly transports you to a rock concert with its exteriors. Either you love it or you hate it, there’s no in-between for the Hard Rock in the sunshine state.

Thankfully, this isn’t an actual house but just an art installation. People who’ve dared to venture inside this creative house have echoed feelings of awe, and vertigo, in there.

The Mobile Aquatic Pod, England

Designed by philosopher Stephen Turner as an experiment, the house was meant to just be an art installation but later turned into Turner’s residence on water.

Ship Houses, California

California is the city of stars, but it turns out it’s also the city of extremely weirdly shaped dwellings. These houses, which are on land, are actually shaped like stranded boats.

Ship Houses, California

They can’t be called houseboats either, since there is no water anywhere. However, these ship houses are a great addition to the anyway quirky California. Not to mention, they certainly stand out as a unique idea of how to change up your house.

Malator House, UK

Just one look at this structure, and it’s impossible to not think of Po and Dipsy. Also known as the Teletubby House, this residence in Wales is built entirely underground, and is invisible from the top due to being covered in grass.

The only way to view this house is the tiny patch of front glass. The house was built in 1998 and is a unique take on how to blend nature with architecture.

Hotel Marqués de Riscal, Frank Gehry

This is architect Frank Gehry’s second most famous building. The interiors are a beautiful, serene design and the resort is a must-visit for anybody who likes architecture and experimentation when choosing their accommodation.

Studio City, Macau

Macau is a city that’s teeming with high-fi resorts, each one better than the last. So doing something to get people’s attention is a must. Studio City’s strategy was to speak to people’s love for pop culture by adding elements of it throughout their hotel.

If you’re somebody who likes your privacy and only wants to see people on your own terms, this might not be the house for you. Just looking at this house is enough to give a person the feeling of being watched.

The Window House

Multiple windows decorate every wall of the house, though it’s hard to pin down what the reason for it could be. Just imagine how high their curtain bill must’ve been!

The Mushroom House, New York

These houses might not be as bizarre as the others, but they definitely warrant some quirk with their mushrooms. Built around the 1970s in New York, the structure resembles a mushroom from the outside and rests high above the ground.

The Mushroom House, New York

The interior is decorated with mosaic tiling. Overall, the house feels just different enough to be unique. Not to mention, it’s surrounded by nature.

Hoola Hoops, Sydney

Imagine one hula hoop sitting on the ground. Now imagine hundreds of them laying on top of one another, slightly lopsided and making a pretty structure. That’s what this building looks like – a stack of hoops.

Hoola Hoops, Sydney

Either that or this quirky design can easily be the dust that Bugs Bunny leaves behind when he runs away from everything. Since it seems to be set in a corporate setting, we guess even the workers know the power of running!

Upside Down House, Germany

This house is very famous amongst tourists who visit Germany and it really is a must-visit place. The upside-down house is built like its name suggests – upside down. Everything inside the house is flipped upside-down.

Transparent House, Japan

The transparent windows all around the house allow plenty of daylight to filter in. It’s inspired by our ancestors, who lived in trees.

35 Unnecessary Things That No One Asked for But Someone Invented Anyway

Some inventions are so hilarious that we couldn’t stop ourselves from putting together this list of the funniest inventions ever made for your entertainment.

Eye Drop Funnels

Eye drops are so tricky because your eyelids immediately want to close, but before that, you need to be able to hit your target. So much liquid has been wasted by near-hits around the eyes, and you want to make sure you make the most out of the medicine you buy. Red eyes will no longer have to wait for you to improve your aim, as these funnels conveniently guide the Visine straight into your eyes. The only improvement would be a Clockwork Orange-style eye braces to hold them open and you’re set.

Eyedrop Funnels

The Incogni-Shoe

Using a public restroom is quite a mortifying experience for many people, which is understandable. Even if you manage to sanitize it to the highest possible level, going number two at home is so much better because you’re not announcing it to the public, half of whom is free to enter and identify you by your shoes. Then everyone knows exactly who did what in there. Avoid such situations with these shoe blinds, which allow you to relieve yourself in anonymity.

The Incogni-Shoe

Croc Visor

Crocs, if you’ve been living under a rock for the past 15 years, are the fashionable footwear that has taken the world by storm. OK, so they might not be the pinnacle of haute couture, but the world wouldn’t be the same without them. With holes on the top for ventilation and a strap at the back to secure it comfortably to your foot, it’s an iconic look, for sure. Clearly, one fan of the shoe decided these features are exactly what we need in a visor.

Croc Visor

DIY Oreo Supreme

Supreme is a fashion brand that sells random stuff for a lot of money just because it has the word “Supreme” on them. We all know this, but it needs to be stated to be fully appreciated. The Oreo-Supreme collaboration sold out in no time, which was totally foreseeable. Now people are auctioning them online for small fortunes, which means a stupid expenditure for some. Don’t be that person to spend your grocery money on Supreme Oreos, just make them yourself.

The Calf Scratcher

Your heels are just as dirty and disgusting as the rest of the soles of your shoe, but when you get an itch down there on your calves, the first instinct you have is to use your heels to give it a little scratch. Later, you might touch the same area with your hands, spreading disease-causing microbes everywhere. Avoid those unsanitary moments with these convenient calf-scratchers, which remain clean by staying far away from the ground. Furthermore, you won’t need to lift your leg as high to get a good scratch.

Furry Nose Warmer

It seems like they have an article of clothing for every body part to be covered in the winter, with one exception — the nose. For generations, humanity has suffered in winter where it snows with freezing noses. It’s sad, but the truth is that our noses have been left exposed to the elements for far too long. That is, until now when this brilliant inventor created the first prototype. It’s so perfect for when you need to go outside in the toe-biting cold.

Furry Nose Warmer

TV Hat

Do you ever get sick of having to watch something on your phone, exerting unnecessary energy by holding it up when people around you want quiet? Luckily, headphones mean that we don’t need to interrupt or be interrupted by the outside world when we zone out on our phones, but there is a much better way to do this. Holding the phone in your hand isn’t a great idea, especially when you have inventions like this TV hat personal theater.

TV Hat

Spare Airpods in Storage

Airpods are such an awesome way to interact with the world, whose only way of knowing if you’re insane or not is if they can spot the little white strips hanging out of your ear. The only real issue with having wireless earbuds is there is no wire to hold the darn things together, so they get lost really easily. Luckily, you don’t have to wait to buy new ones if you just think ahead. Buy a supply and store it in bulk!

Peaky Blinders

Do you know that feeling when you’re peeking through a keyhole to a room someone thinks is private? It’s pretty cool knowing that you can see other people interacting without them being aware of your presence at all, and this invention is an attempt to recreate that with this light and portable headgear. The only issue with these glasses is that everyone can see you and, instead of remaining unnoticed, they will surely attract people’s attention.

Peaky Blinders

Shoe Umbrella

Walking around when it’s raining is fine for the upper part of the body, but somehow the bottom half always gets wet. You then need to spend time at your destination, once you get there, drying yourself off before you can get on with your business. This is a shame and time is money, they say. All you need to do to make sure your feet don’t get wet is open up a couple of umbrellas for your feet.

Shoe Umbrella

Driver Desk

Commuting to work is such a pain when you just want to be at your desk already. Until we find a way to teleport, the best solution to these aggravating driving moments is this convenient work desk for drivers. It’s retractable, can easily store pencils, and is conveniently placed under your steering wheel. The only issue we can think of is that it looks like the steering wheel wouldn’t be able to make a turn while the desk is out. Other than that, no problems.

Driver Desk

Air Con

The ad for these air-conditioned shoes makes them look like an ultra-futuristic dream available in our lifetime thanks to very modern ingenuity. Too bad they’re just shoes with holes in the soles, and the soles are the last place in the shoe you want to have holes. They’re more like windows-open shoes. One day, though, we might have figured out how to deck our kicks out with air conditioning units small and light enough to fit in a shoe.

Air Con

Sleep-Walking Onesy

These are great for campfires that are inconveniently located far from your tent, but it might have other applications, too. Many sleepwalkers try to leave the city once in a while for some shut-eye out in the woods, as camping might be good for their condition, but it’s a lot more dangerous than you think to try to stand up and walk while you’re in a sleeping bag. You risk tripping over yourself instead of just hitting a tree head-on with these bad boys.

Sleep-Walking Onesy

Pet Rocks Now With USB Ports!

Pet rocks were quite the fad back in the day, but kids nowadays won’t be interested in anything that can’t hook up to a computer. Remember when one of your parents gave you a toy they liked but it was too outdated? With this pet rock equipped with a USB port, you can share the most exciting toy you ever had as a child with your own kids! Can you put your pictures, music, and other files on it? No, but who cares?!

One Piece at a Time

Toilet paper is one of those simple household necessities whose importance can’t be stressed enough. However, it’s often the first thing to disappear from the shelves in times when people fear for their future. Luckily, you can stave off worrying about the impending apocalypse as long as you’re frugal with your TP. Even in normal times, this makes sure pesky guests using your bathroom to do their duty don’t take too much of your precious toilet paper.

Diet Water

A few decades ago, soft drink companies realized they could make a killing off of people concerned about the high levels of sugar and other natural sweeteners in their soft drink formulae. All they needed to do was add a zero-calorie artificial sweetener and put the words diet on it. People soon found pretty much every drink in diet form, but Sapporo soon found a drinking product that had yet to be labeled and sold in diet form: water.

Diet Water

Goldfish Walker

Goldfish really get the short end of the stick when it comes to pets. Besides being fed daily (we hope), they have very little interaction with the world outside their fishbowl. Even a pet with a memory of 15 seconds will soon get tired of the same old surroundings. But now, some brilliant genius invented a machine that can allow your goldfish to get some much-needed fresh air. Because isn’t that what a fish deserves after spending all day in your living room, submerged in water?

Goldfish Walker

Cut-Off Convertibles

Cut-off jeans are all the rage in summer, but we all know how quickly we can get cold again once we go indoors. Long jeans are much more fitting for the air temperature indoors, and now we can all have the comfort of the right length in one article of clothing. For a long time, we’ve had cargo pants that we could easily convert into shorts, which might be the greatest invention since rivets in jeans. Now, though, we have the convenience of convertibles with the style and feel of cut-offs.

Fast Floss

Flossing is one of the best things you can do for your teeth, as it releases all of the food particles, plaque, and cavity-causing bacteria that settle in between your pearly whites. The biggest issue facing those who don’t floss, though, is that it’s just too darn time-consuming. Rolling up a string and going in between each and every tooth takes ages, but we don’t have to slave away for those long minutes any longer. Now, we can floss our whole mouth in mere seconds.

Fast Floss

Infection Prevention Belt

People are warier than ever of coming in contact with one another, and for good reason. There is a slew of guidelines that must be followed to ensure your safety, yet these are really hard to do. You have to wash your hands every time you touch anything and shouldn’t touch your face. This belt has all the features needed to keep you safe, including a cord to prevent you from touching your face, water on hand for washing on the scene, an extra hand for handshakes, and a fake arm to use the elbow to sneeze.

Carbon Monoxide Cooking Method

This exhaust-powered grill is perfect for those non-stop road trips when you just want to bite into some delicious barbecue. As the exhaust travels through the pipe, it warms up the grill and you can cook delicious meat in there. It’s truly a way to travel while being as environmentally friendly as possible. After all, no coal or wood was used, and we all know how much smoke and terrible chemicals are spewed into the atmosphere when we cook with them.

Carbon Monoxide Cooking Method

DVD Rewinder

Finally, someone invented something that we could all use. Chances are you’ve never rewinded a DVD in your life. Can you imagine how DVDs would feel if they had feelings and knew how you used to rewind all your old VHS tapes? There was so much care we used to put into things to make sure they ran well. You made an important life decision when you made the transition to digital, but that doesn’t mean that there’s no room for love and care for your new things.

DVD Rewinder

Conveniently Placed

The gloriousness of toilet paper can’t be written about enough. Think it’s only for post-bowel-movement clean-up? Not so. In fact, you can use it to blow your nose just the same as you would use a tissue. Now, you never have you rummage through your pockets for a lint-filled handkerchief. Disposable rolls of paper like these are much more sanitary, and they can always be used when you run out of the precious material in the bathroom stall after you’d already done your business.

Conveniently Placed

Extra Protection

In some ways, we have never been safer than we are now, with emissions control on cars, incredible medical knowledge, and a slew of stringent laws to protect us. That being said, the fact that we have the whole world at our fingertips the second we unlock our phones can also be extremely dangerous. No, we’re not talking about 5G conspiracies, but rather about running into things and hitting your head. With this head guard, you can browse around the internet looking at cat pictures while walking around without worrying about tree trunks.

Extra Protection

Something for Times of Crisis

You know when you need to hit control, alt, and delete together at the same time because the computer froze or something, but you just can’t figure out how to do it right? Those of us with sausage fingers know that the struggle to hit three different keys accurately so far apart is easier said than done. Thankfully, some genius invented this wand that can hit all of these buttons at the same time, and boy is it satisfying!

Something for Times of Crisis

Stick of Avocado

Avocado on a stick is exactly what you need to make sure your toast is getting the right amount of the delicious fruit spread all over. It’s an elegant solution to an age-old problem that has confounded our greatest scientists for years. You scoop up some avocado, but once it’s on the piece of bread you can’t exactly put it back. You’re forced to eat it all and, even though it has healthy fats, there are so many calories in it that some of us would like to eat a bit less.

Stick of Avocado

Lens Wipers

It’s not easy to be cool in this world, and nothing’s a bigger drag than getting water all over the fly lenses dangling on your nose. There’s water everywhere, and it’s so annoying to take off your shades because you can’t see. Wiping with your shirt means you have a wet shirt and that’s just as much of a bummer, yet now there’s a solution. You don’t need to let wet lenses get you down any longer, as these sunglasses wipers are the answer.

Kids nowadays are fussier than ever before, and it’s never been harder to teach your kid how to use the toilet. Thankfully, there’s something to attract them to the toilet so they can concentrate on something else while they relieve themselves. Want to really train your kids fast? Don’t give them any screen time at all unless they’re on the potty, and you’ll see how fast your kid learns. That’ll train them in no time, all that’s needed is positive reinforcement.

Work While You Commute

While there have been many advancements that allow for the labor force to fully realize its productive potential by working while in transit, there wasn’t an option available for those who prefer greener methods of transportation — until now. Why waste all that time coming to and from work when employers can utilize their staff more efficiently? Attach to your bike or scooter and see how many TPS reports you’re able to finish before you even walk through the front door of the office in the morning.

Swiss Army Shovel

The one issue with farming tools is you can only pick up one at a time. Do you want to use a hoe? Well, then, better drop that pickaxe because there’s no way you can till that soil with a tool in each hand! That’s all changed, as this brilliant inventor took the idea of a Swiss army knife and applied it to farming tools. It’s got shovels, rakes, and more — the first and last tool every serious farmer will ever need!

Elon Musk Toast

Elon Musk is one of the most colorful and public entrepreneurs around today, and there’s nothing more inspirational than seeing assorted images of the legend when you eat breakfast, the most important meal of the day. This toaster burns several different images of Musk, so it’s always a surprise to see which one you’re going to get!

Retractable Butter Stick

Buying a stick of butter doesn’t have to be so boring, and spreading it on toast doesn’t have to be so hard. Butter usually comes in rectangles that lie motionless, dull, and boring in your fridge, yet someone invented an interactive way to enjoy smearing butter on toast. Merging the latest chapstick technology with delicious goodness, this way you put just the right amount. Use this to grease your pan without worrying about putting too big or small a chunk in.

Barefootwear

The sublime feeling of walking around barefoot, sensing the earth under the soles of the feet, is one that societal pressure has taken away from us. Some places won’t serve you if you have no shoes on. With this shoe, you can look right for any occasion, all the while enjoying the experience of a bare foot underneath. No one needs to know you went to their wedding barefoot, as long as you can keep the magnificent feeling of dancing barefoot on the marble floor at the venue to yourself.

Improving the Classic Design!

Chopsticks are messy to eat with because they’re so thin, but they are what many cultures use for their meals. Confucius, the great ancient Chinese philosopher, said, “The honorable and upright man keeps well away from both the slaughterhouse and the kitchen. And he allows no knives on his table.” However, if you’ve ever tried chopsticks their shortcomings become clear. Using the thin end of two sticks held in one hand to grab food isn’t nearly as efficient as this brilliant engineering from Instagram user @unnecessaryinventions, which satisfies both the Confucian code and bellies hungry for more with each bite.

There are incredible chargers nowadays that use induction technology to charge batteries without using a wire at all. Induction uses electromagnetic fields to produce heat or currents and has quite a lot of applications to this very day. It’s quite a fascinating technology that dates back almost 200 years, and today it’s often used in stoves. This was a connection a brilliant inventor made, as there’s no reason why the same technology that you use to charge your phone can’t heat up your food without fire whatsoever.
