5. The Basket Building (Ohio, United States)
The Longaberger Basket Company building in Newark, Ohio might just be a strangest office building in the world. The 180,000-square-foot building, a replica of the company’s famous market basket, cost $30 million and took two years to complete. Many experts tried to persuade Dave Longaberger to alter his plans, but he wanted an exact replica of the real thing.

6. Kansas City Public Library (Missouri, United States)
This project, located in the heart of Kansas City, represents one of the pioneer projects behind the revitalization of downtown.
The people of Kansas City were asked to help pick highly influential books that represent Kansas City. Those titles were included as ‘bookbindings’ in the innovative design of the parking garage exterior, to inspire people to utilize the downtown Central Library.

8. Habitat 67 (Montreal, Canada)
Expo 67, one of the world’s largest universal expositions was held in Montreal. Housing was one of the main themes of Expo 67.
The cube is the base, the mean and the finality of Habitat 67. In its material  sense, the cube is a symbol of stability. As for its mystic meaning, the cube is symbol of wisdom, truth, moral perfection, at the origin itself of our civilization.
354 cubes of a magnificent grey-beige build up one on the other to form 146 residences nestled between sky and earth, between city and river, between greenery and light.

9. Cubic Houses (Rotterdam, Netherlands)
The original idea of these cubic houses came about in the 1970s. Piet Blom has developed a couple of these cubic houses that were built in Helmond.
The city of Rotterdam asked him to design housing on top of a pedestrian bridge and he decided to use the cubic houses idea. The concept behind these houses is that he tries to create a forest by each cube representing an abstract tree; therefore the whole village becomes a forest.

10. Hang Nga Guesthouse a.k.a Crazy House (Vietnam)
The house is owned by the daughter of the ex-president of Vietnam, who studied architecture in Moscow.
It does not comply with any convention about house building, has unexpected twists and turns, roofs and rooms. It looks like a fairy tale castle, it has enormous “animals” like a giraffe and a spider, no window is rectangular or round and it can be visited like a museum.

11. The Inside-Out House - United States 
Finally, "Inversion" was a temporary art-installation project that looked kinda like the aftermath of a terrible drilling accident. In 2005, a few months before the house in Houston, Tex., was to be demolished, artists Dan Havel and Dean Ruck created a large funnel-like vortex beginning from the west wall adjacent to the street. The exterior skin of the house was peeled off and used to create the narrowing spiral as it progressed eastward through the small central hallway connecting this building and another, exiting through a small hole into an adjacent courtyard.

12.The Bubble House - France
 Architect Antti Lovag, a pioneer in ferro-cement design, committed to the concept of organic architecture inspired by shapes and forms found in nature. Lovag has one very famous work in the French Rivierra, called Le Palais Bulles ("The Palace of Bubbles"), which he designed in conjunction with Pierre Cardin.
Lovag designed a few bubble houses on the same coast. The one in Tourette-sur-Loup, high on a hillside behind Nice, is only 38 years old, yet it is already listed as a historic monument by the French Ministry of Culture.

13. The Ufo House (Sanjhih, Taiwan)
This bizarre looking building in Sanjhih is actually an abandoned resort project. The Taiwanese locals call it The UFO House because of it’s somewhat extra-terrestrial design. Cypherone (Taipei) has a Flickr set with over 40 photos of this abandoned holiday resort in Taiwan.

One of many shoe-shaped houses in the world, the South African shoe house, in Mpumalanga Province, was built in 1990 by entrepreneur and artist Ron Van Zyl, a South African artist and hotelier who built the strange building at his wife's request. The interior is a museum of rock and wood carvings made by Van Zyl himself. The Shoe is part of a bigger project, which includes a camp site and a chalet guest house, restaurant, bar, pool and shop

15. The Seashell House
The Nautilus, designed by Mexican architect Javier Senosiain, is located in Mexico City.  Like nothing you’ve ever seen before – it closely resembles the inside of a shell. Kinda reminds us of something you’d find in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!
