Think you must be came across some of the world unusual architecture. There is an Architecture blog that dedicated to collect all the strangest, most unusual, weird and crazy buildings of our world in one big and easy to use list. Check it out!
The Cubic Houses in Rotterdam, Netherlands (shown above) is always one of my favourite from the list of world unusual architecture. The original idea of these cubic houses came about in the 1970s. The concept behind these houses is that Piet Blom tries to create a forest by each cube representing an abstract tree; therefore the whole village becomes a forest. The cubes contain the living areas, which are split into three levels. The triangle-shaped lower level contains the living area. The middle level contains the sleeping area and a bathroom, while the top level, also in a triangular shape, is used as either an extra bedroom or a living space.
