50+ More Unusual Buildings Architecture

As it’s very transparent that Architectural works are perceived as cultural and political symbols and works of art. Historical civilizations are often known primarily through their architectural achievements. Cities, regions and cultures continue to identify themselves with (and are known by) their architectural monuments.

We are lucky to exist in a revolutionary generation where we have a chance to see pattern braking Architectural achievements by modern blood.

The Architecture expressed by the dreams, spirit and aspirations of a nation or a whole community stand as an expression of its core unique values in matter and the multiplicity of different styles and typologies found in modern Art reflect the socio-economic, cultural, ideological, ecological and climatic factors that have shaped us over 3 decades.

When Modern architecture was first practiced, it was an avant-garde movement with moral, philosophical, and aesthetic underpinnings. Immediately after World War I, pioneering modernist architects sought to develop a completely new style appropriate for a new post-war social and economic order, focused on meeting the needs of the middle and working classes. They rejected the architectural practice of the academic refinement of historical styles which served the rapidly declining aristocratic order.

The approach of the Modernist architects was to reduce buildings to pure forms, removing historical references and ornament in favor of functionalist details. Many architects resisted Modernism, finding it devoid of the decorative richness of ornamented styles.

As the complexity of buildings began to increase (in terms of structural systems, services, energy and technologies), architecture started becoming more multi-disciplinary. Architecture today usually requires a team of specialist professionals, with the architect being one of many, although usually the team leader.

  39. Gran parte de los edificios son espectaculares pero feos se olvidan de lo humano y solo piensan en llamar la atencion, me gustan mucho el estilo de francia (muy artisticos), españa y brasil. y los de EU parecen que son para esenografia. Existen gran ingenio en cosas tan bellas y espectaculares como la casa de Frank loyd Write
    Saludos desde Mexico

    [Translation: Many of the ugly buildings are spectacular but they forget the human and the only think to call attention, I really like the style of France (very artistic), Spain and Brazil. and the U.S. look like they are for esenografia. There is great talent in things as beautiful and spectacular as the home of Frank Loyd Write
    Greetings from Mexico]

  40. Nice Collection. Could you add Canada Place in Vancouver?

  41. These are awesome! It’s amazing what people can build.

  45. making it a goal to view and get inside of at least 6 of these buildings! the outside just makes me want to see the inside that much more..

  46. I’ve read several good stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how much effort you put to create such a great site.
