Top 33 World’s Strangest Buildings (sorted by 4.520 visitors votes)

If you are bored panda like me, you know that the best way to fight boredom is finding all kind of weird stuff.

And now, that you’ve found that page, you are just about to kill your boredom. Do you love architecture? has a wonderful collection of the world’s most unusual architecture and together with Bored Panda presents you an incredible list of 33 strangest buildings in the world, and best of all, it’s not just another random list, but it is based on 4.520 unique visitor votes. So don’t blame panda for this exact order, blame yourself for voting this way, or for not voting at all. (the voting took place here.)

Well enough of those boring talks, prepare your hand for scrolling down the list, while bored panda eats another bamboo leaf.

P.S.: if you want to find out more information about the building (date it was built, architect, interior shots) don’t forget to visit

12. Rotating Tower, Dubai, UAE

(Bamboo leaf for Dynamic Architecture â„¢ all rights reserved to Dr. David Fisher)

Have you ever seen a building in motion that actually changes its shape? Sounds unbelievable but not to Dr. David Fisher. This building will never appear exactly the same twice.

It is amazing but you will have the choice of waking up to sunrise in your bedroom and enjoying sunsets over the ocean at dinner.

In addition to being such an incredible engineering miracle it will produce energy for itself and even for other buildings because it will have wind turbines fitted between each rotating floor (picture 2). So an 80-story building will have up to 79 wind turbines, making it a true green power plant.
