The building's "pixelated" appearance gives the impression like it's falling apart
Polygone Riviera, France
This building is located in a open air French mall, divided into four districts (Home & Garden, Lifestyle, Premium, and The Designer Gallery). The 22 meter (72 ft.) building itself is titled “Guetteur” which translated to English means "the lookout".

At 4 meters wide, this residence is breathtaking! I'd love to live here
Fort Alexander (Plague Fort), Saint Petersburg, Russia
Everything about this place is sort of creepy. From a stable for laboratory horses to the cremation facility for lab animals, for about 20 years, this place was a research facility for the Plague and other bacterial diseases (hence the name). And even a couple of deaths of two people doing that research.
