Have you ever wondered what the weirdest buildings in the world are? Well, look no further! Whether its a hotel, restaurant, or just an office building, who says it has to look normal and boring? Although some of these buildings are probably going to make you wonder what kind of crazy thoughts the architect was thinking, it’s hard to not appreciate the creativity involved. These are the 25 Weirdest Buildings In The World.


The Basket Building (Ohio, United States)


Headquarters of the Longaberger Basket Company in Newark, Ohio, this building is constructed to look exactly like the basket they are famous for producing. Although numerous experts tried to convince the David Longaberger to go for something a little different, his mind was set.


Elephant Building (Bangkok, Thailand)

This 335-foot high structure was built with a sense of humor. It’s an urban complex, housing shopping malls, business offices, and apartments.


Shark Bar (Perm, Russia)

This cool-looking bar is made from an old boat. It’s on stilts, so when the Kama River has too much water, it spills over and the shark bar looks like it’s sitting on the water.


Habitat 67 (Montreal, Canada)


Sometimes shortened to just Habitat, this model housing community was built for Expo 67 (the World Fair in 1967).


The Sheep Building (Tirau, Waikato, New Zealand)
