I had no idea the Taiwanese culture was so superstitious, it's a shame that these awesome dwellings never got to be used though. I am gonna dig around a little bit to see if I can find an info on the building related deaths, doesn't seem like a project that would be likely to cause deaths so It's very interesting.

P.S. I don't go into the ocean past my waste either but thats just because I'm convinced the second I do I will be swallowed whole by a great white shark, completely irrational and I know it yet I am still convinced it will happen lol

I love the Russian one. It has a real 'Tim Burton' vibe about it.

Thanks for sharing!

Haha, you know whats funny? That is the exact thing I thought about when I seen this structure. It obviously is not an engineering marvel but what it is is thought provoking and a work of art that stirs imagination, why was it built, for what? What is the nature of the building and who envisioned it?

Very interesting indeed, buildings are like people because they have been thought up and constructed by people, by understanding the art behind the structure we can start to understand the people behind them.

I will anchor the picture for you because you are right, this is fascinating, It is modern day society re creating structures from our most distant past and in doing that, marks a historical and very exciting design for modern development and design.

The same reason that clothing fashions keep making a circle in society is the same reason architectural structures reoccur in history, they remain relevant throughout time, if not just waiting for the time that people once again find the form attractive.

This is actually, the same basic structure that you could have seen thousands of years ago in many desert based societies and is very beautiful in it's own right.

I heard it was constructed so that every apartment would get access to a balcony without having someone on top to block the sun, I know it's possible to rent but I heard it's a bit hard to actually become a member has they have community aspects.

Nice finds!
I've gotten to see UFO styles houses, a pyramid(Egyptian themed) house and a upsidedown(link of some upsidedown houses) houses in person. As well as architecture of downtown Seattle museums (EMP), etc.
The ones shown, top what I've seen! Since I'm a fan of weird or interesting architecture and as an artist.

Evoloun in Eindhoven (Netherlands) - used to be a science centre, but now a company runs their office out of the UFO

In a worlf full of conformity, playfulness like these designers show is truly refreshing.

These are incredible! I knew of a few of them, but most were my first introduction to them. One of the most interesting things I ever saw was House on the Rock, and I confess I only went to see it after reading Gaiman's American Gods. I want to nab these all and stitch them into my writing!
