Call them follies, flights of fancy or simply playful disruptions of more staid architectural design. Whatever the label, people continue to build idosynchratic structures that manage to express imagination, whimsy and fun above all else.
The Village of Joy blog rounds up lists of all kinds of wonderment, from crazy ads to optical illusions. Their collection of architectural oddities ranges all over the topical and geographical map. And while it lacks any clear criteria for lists such as "The 10 Strangest Buildings in the World ", the visual surveys do manage to crack a smile and raise the question–what is it about these buildings that make them attractive, that make them seem like fun?
Also, visit sister site Unusual-architecture.com for photo blogging of the same crazy collection of buildings.
