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.

Also, visit sister site for photo blogging of the same crazy collection of buildings.
