Imagine what we could accomplish if we could throw off our shackles and work creatively together, using all the knowledge we possess, combined. S & F, OP.

That last picture has to be Photoshopped... Wow. Any other pics of that one, maybe different angles, or a website? That's too dangerous to live in...

Awesome thread!

Love the solar furnace house! Being able to create your own heat from solar would be awesome. Probably not cost effective for the first 100 years though - I suspect the glass panels and collection plate costs would outweigh the ability to offset the electric costs, even with throwing stuff back on the grid. But pretty cool - I wish we had more of that going on in our cities.

Well that's a fine collection you have guys some eye watering offerings I however wonder why nobody bothered to add the 'Coral Castle' in Florida? A mind bending building which was also the home of the it's creator. As I understand he made the complex structure himself.

I see no mention of the Pyramids and again some older architectural delights such as Stonehenge which are/were buildings ie, having a purpose. For myself at least the most bizarre buildings are those created from a shear rock/cliff face like the Rock-Hewn Churches of Lalibela, Ethiopia and the Cappadocia Cave Houses, Turkey.

Smashing thread I am sure you guys have more to offer it.

These places are mind-blowing. XD We actually drove past the Wonderworks house almost daily when we were on vacation in the Smokies, but I couldn't convince my parents to visit it.

) in Hannover two years ago

Great post! Seen the russian gangster house pic.before, it fascinates me in a weird way, kind of contempary Brothers Grimm.
The Ferdinand Cheval Palace! What a building, built by a french postman no less!
Here is a Hobbit Hole, everyone must have a space in their heart for a Hobbit Hole(a recollection of the womb maybe)?










And an interesting Grimmesque Russian build

As I have an interest in Houseboating I was searching for the more unusual styles of houseboat when I came across the buildings depicted here and many more. There really are some amazing homes. I really liked some of the tree houses I saw in my search and I suppose it comes from childhood memories but have to admit that I really like the hobbit house. I think it is truly sad how we as humans conform to some ideas of little square boxes to call our home when instead we could have such creative living spaces. This thought reminds me too of the way we dress and style our hair. I do really feel sad for people when they think there is something wrong with someone who dresses or lives different to the way they do. What a closed little box our society creates. We are capable of so much more. Well some of us anyway.

Opening Post, but it can actually mean 2 different things. Sometimes, it means the actual person. So 'Helious' is the OP of this particular thread. Other times, it is just referring to the original, or actual opening comment, that Helious opened this thread up with.
