Cool! Wish we had more like these. Why does most architecture have to be boring boxes?

John Y, Iím surprised at your reaction. Architecture is the art of building design. Art is very personal - it draws admiration from some, indifference from others and even disgust or strong negative feelings. Buildings are no different, except that the amount of money required in special engineering is so great that very few people are able to step away from conventional building practices. Thatís why 99% of modern architecture is mind-numbingly boring and the very antithesis of art.

Some of these buildings donít appeal to me - I personally find some of them awful! But oh- how wonderful to see something different! Something that makes you stop in your tracks and think, ĎHow on Earth did they do that?!í Or just makes you think. Pure art.

A building design that requires large amounts of unsustainable material, such as plastic or concrete, could be a waste of resources. But a waste of time? Never.

I think my favorite is the shell house. I wish there had been some pictures of the interiors as well.
