The world is filled with unique and just flat out strange structures. While every country seems to have its own style of construction, no two buildings are the same. Let’s take a look at some of the most creative, strange and unique structures in the world.
The Turning Torso
Located in Sweden, the Turning Torso is one of the more unique buildings in the entire world. Its uncharacteristic shape sees it twist a full 90 degrees from its base to the top. This Swedish apartment complex features 54 stories of twists and turns.
The Lotus Temple
One of the most iconic temples in the world, the Lotus Temple resides in Delhi, India as a place where locals go to worship. The Lotus Temple was opened in 1986 with its unique flower-like structure. The flower petals make this temple a one of a kind.
The Krzywy Domek is perhaps one of the strangest looking structures on this list. While it looks like something out of a horror film, this building is part of the Rezydent shopping center in Sopot, Poland.
The Longaberger Company Headquarters
