Strange Beauty

I am always fascinated by the relationship between nature and architecture.  There is something magical about shapes, colors and textures that we find in the Great Outdoors. Architecture is a wonderful way to interpret these natural findings in modern ways.  It’s always amazing when the end result strikes that delicate balance between tension and harmony with its surroundings – strange enough to be slightly jarring, yet somehow still feels like an extension of its environment.

Here are some bizarre and fascinating buildings.  Enjoy!
