Colorful house in Vienna.
Austrian architect Friedrich Hundertwasser is famous for his unusual projects, this house is one of them. The building does not find two windows of the same shape and size. The house has uneven walls, its facade is delineated with asymmetrical quadrangles. The floor looks like forest paths, and around the house and on it is full of diverse vegetation.

Sutyagin’s house or “wooden skyscraper”.
It is located in Arkhangelsk and is considered the tallest wooden building in the world. It is interesting that this 13-story building was built according to ancient technology, without a single nail. The creator stopped in the building at the moment when he could see the White Sea from the last, thirteenth floor. The author, a former criminal Nikolai Sutyagin, was never able to complete his creation, as he was arrested. After leaving the prison, he did not have the means to complete the construction. Sutyagin for some time lived on the lower floor of his creation, leading tours around the house. However, the fact that the house was recognized as a sensation at the conference “Wooden Construction in Northern Cities” did not save the building from the persecution. It turns out that in a city it is impossible to build private wooden buildings without the consent of the authorities, therefore, with the help of a court decision in February 2009, the building was completely destroyed.

Habitat 67 in Canada.
This building was supposed to give the illusion of a number of separate separate buildings, but it does not differ economically from the usual apartment building.

Kijk-Kubus in Rotterdam.
The Dutch city has presented one more architectural masterpiece. It seems that it’s hard to live in an inclined house, but it’s not. The building was designed and built by the architect Pete Bloom.

Apartments in Vozoko.
The construction of this complex in Rotterdam required a land law and errors in the drawings. In Holland, it is prescribed to provide residents of houses with a certain level of illumination, but architects forgot to do this when designing. As a result, a brilliant decision was born – to hang 13 of 100 apartments to the northern facade of the building. This solution allows you to save space on the ground and allows you to penetrate the right amount of light on the western and eastern facades.
