“Weird” is not the word existing in the dictionary of architects of these buildings. Because what’s weird for others is cool for them. Not just that their cool is turned into something so unusual that it’s no more weird. Innovation with creativity is intelligence and these creative buildings are a proof for it.
So what these innovation masters are up to is what this blog is all about. I know creativity’s appreciation can be super subjective. Money wasted. But for others these are the coolest things they have ever seen.
