The Strangest Buildings on Earth

#1 Voglreiter Auto Residence
Voglreiter Auto Residence is the home of designer Markus Voglreiter. It is "parked" near Salzburg, Germany and while the exterior is whimsical, the inside is quite modern and practical.

#2 The Basket Building
This is the corporate office of the Longaberger Basket Company based in Newark, Ohio. Ohio isn't a state that naturally screams abstract or even interesting but it's home of The Basket Building so at least it's got that going for it.

#3 Stone House
Stone House is exactly what it sounds like. The home made out of stone is one of the most impressive homes in Portugal, attracting tourists and media.

#4 WonderWorks
WonderWorks is an entertainment center focused on science exhibits. Their slogan is "let your imagination run wild" and as you can see by their insanely cool building, they really mean that.

#5 The Atomium
Designed by engineer Mozart and architects Andre and Jean Polak for the 1958 Brussels World's Fair, the Atomium is Europe's most bizarre building. With a slogan that says "dare to dream of a better future on a human scale", the building is doing its part to continue to inspire.

#6 The Golfball House
Somewhere on the long stretch between California and the first glimpse of civilization in Northern Arizona you will pass by this unusual home. Located in Yucca Arizona, this home also serves as a landmark and tourist attraction noted for it's resemblance to a golf ball.

#7 Ryugyong Hotel
Named the "Worst Building in the History of Mankind" by Esquire Magazine in 2008, the 105-story hotel has never been occupied. It has remained unfinished for more than 20 years and did we mention it's located in North Korea??

#8 Le Palais Idéal
Hailed as the most impressive example of naive art architecture, this palace was built by a man named Ferdinand Cheva over the course of 33 years. The postman to the village of Hauterives built this building by hand using only stones and other organic material.

#9 Valencia Opera House
Located in Valencia, Spain, this opera house is noted by its unusual shape. Resembling a helmet, this building has attracted its share of visitors interested in music and architecture alike.

#10 Mind House
In Spain you will find this house that looks like something from fairytales. The Mind House is a museum exhibiting architect Antoni Gaudí’s personal property and creations.

#11 The Neverwas Haul
This steampunk house on wheels was built by members of the Academy of Unnatural Sciences in 2006. It makes yearly appearances at festivals like Burning Man and can occasionally be seen driving around areas in California.

#12 The Hobbit House
Built for a family in Wales, this home resembles a fantasy world. J.R.R. Tolkien would be proud to know a home was built honoring one of his most famous stories and fictional communities.

#13 Dancing House/Fred and Ginger
This is one of the beautiful buildings created by architects Vlado Milunic and Frank Gehry. The house was designed to resemble a pair of dancers and it was originally called "Fred and Ginger" after Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

#14 Kansas City Public Library
C'mon, this is pretty much the best library ever. When they designed the art, they had the people of Kansas City choose the titles that belonged there. These were used in the design of the innovative parking garage exterior to draw attention to the library and serve as a reminder for how special books can be.

#15 The Crooked House
The Crooked House, located in Poland, was built over the course of about 11 months in 2003. The design is based on the artwork and photography of Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg.
