What houses surprise tourists

There are so many residential complexes appearing every year that it is difficult to even count them. And it would seem that we are already hardly impressed. We've seen it all: skyscrapers in Lego design, spherical eco-houses, high-rise buildings with 100-meter spires. However, architects continue to look for new forms. The most unusual residential complexes in the world are in the OBOZREVATEL selection.

  • Waldspirale (Darmstadt, Germany)

This house seems to appear from the book "Alice in Wonderland". A strange shape, made in the form of the letter U, not a single straight line or symmetry. Everything - windows, walls, ceiling - looks completely disproportionate. At the same time, the overall design of the building is impressive. On the roof there is a real garden with trees and bushes, between which you can walk along narrow paths. The author of this masterpiece is Friedensreich Hundertwasser.

  • Habitat 67 (Montreal, Canada)

354 monolithic blocks are combined here as if chaotically. However, in fact, there is a logic to it. The structures are placed so that each apartment has access to a private garden located on the roof of the lower module. In this way, the space is used as economically as possible, and the homeowners get additional square meters and comfort. This building was designed by Moshe Safdie in 1967.

  • Casa Mila (Barcelona, Spain)

The international community has long recognized this house as a work of art. It is under the protection of UNESCO. The fact is that its author is the famous architect Antoni Gaudi, who presented Barcelona with many monuments. His creations are often considered strange, untimely, and inappropriate. Not all of his projects were successful. But one thing is for sure - this master will forever remain in the history of Spain and the whole world.

  • Kubuswoningen (Rotterdam, the Netherlands)

Is it possible to live in an inverted cube? History shows that even strange shapes do not interfere with comfort. Thus, the architectural project by Pete Blom is remembered not only for its interesting colors but also for its unusual architectural solutions. The complex consists of 38 buildings that create a vicious circle with a courtyard. This concept is ideal for a quiet family life.

  • Turning Torso (Malmö, Sweden)

From the outside, it seems that the tallest Scandinavian building has been "twisted" by someone. Its body resembles a spiral shape, and its size is simply impressive. Interestingly, the architect Santiago Colatrava was inspired to create this building by his own sculpture. It depicted a person wrapped around himself. Thus, in 2005, such an amazing skyscraper appeared in one of the largest cities in Sweden.
