strange building made of doors1. 1,000 recycled doors are enough for the South Korean architect Choi Jeong-Hwa to transform a dull ten-story building into a fresh-looking landmark. This ‘skyscraper’ in the center of the Korean capital Seoul has become a pixelated landmark, that tells the story of thousand people who once chose a fitting color for a door in their apartment.

10. The Longaberger Building, Newark, Ohio

This truly impressive (whatever your taste!) example of mimetic architecture in Newark, Ohio can safely be called the world’s largest basket!  Those on the inside of the seven storey structure can enjoy the natural light through the massive skylight above.  But looking at this, it could be argued that the founder of mimetic (or novelty) architecture was an utter basket case…

11. Cubic Houses, Rotterdam, Holland

Its intriguing design does a clever job of muddling the eye as it tries to decide whether the building is actually sloping or standing straight – let alone what it must feel like to live in.

12. Container City, London

You’ve heard of trailer parks, especially in the United States, but what about trendy urban living spaces made out of converted sea containers?  While it might seem a rather odd choice to some, shipping containers are immensely strong, long lasting, and if they can survive the storms and tempests of the world’s oceans, the drizzly London air shouldn’t pose too many problems.  The image above depicts Container City II, completed in 2002, at Trinity Buoy Wharf.  Located adjacent to the first plase, its bright colours and funky ziggurat shape offer modern work solutions within its 22 studios.
