Internet portal UNIQUEDAILY.COM, dedicated to funny news from around the world, presented a list of the most amazing architectural structures - according to the authors of the site, of course. The criterion was the original appearance, the deliberate indifference of architects to traditional forms or even the laws of physics.

The first place went to the "dancing" house "Fred and Ginger" by Frank Gehry in Prague. It is followed by the Asian Bank building in Bangkok (1985), designed in the form of a robot - to reflect the development of computer technology in the banking system.

Also mentioned is the luxury hotel of the Sofitel chain in Tokyo, which is inspired by the pagodas and medieval castles of Japan. Despite its exquisite shape, the building is constructed of concrete and painted in a neutral white color.

The Astra brewery tower in Hamburg also makes the list: a traditional office building is supported by one slender leg.

But one of the strangest buildings on the list remains a new wing of a shopping center in Sopot, Poland, nicknamed the Humpbacked House: its façade appears to be unsuccessfully sculpted from plasticine.
