    Architects around the world have no doubt designed some superb buildings but here we take a look at 10 of the most bizarre buildings from around the globe. We have chosen some of the strangest looking, most colourful, and those that make their cities stand out as one of the places that you simply have to visit.

    Lloyds Building in London, England

    [​IMG]


    The Lloyds building is situated in the heart of the financial district in London and is home to an insurance company. It has been called the inside out building due to the fact that the ducts and elevators along with other building services were designed on the outside of the building to free up space inside. The architect behind this bizarre building is Richard Rogers and it would look at home on the set of a science fiction movie.

    Fuji Television Building In Tokyo, Japan

    [​IMG]

    One of the strangest buildings found in Japan is the Fuji TV building with its futuristic looks and a silver ball of 32 meters diameter which seems to be suspended among the structure. Architect Kenzon Tange designed the building to be earthquake proof, with the ball being home to an observation tower.

    Ripleys Believe It Or Not at Niagara Falls, Canada

    [​IMG]

    The Ripleys Believe It Or Not building is very bizarre as it looks as though the building was fallen onto its side. It takes on the look of the Empire State Building with King Kong on top and it is the second oldest of the Ripley buildings in the world.

    The Kansas City Public Library has the name of the Community Bookshelf and has a wall mural that was painted in 2004 which shows the spines of 22 books. The work of art measures 9 feet by 25 feet. The spines of the books were chosen from classics in the library such as Catch 22, To Kill A Mockingbird and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
