    an amazing list, but I gotta say, the Santa monica civic it`s more of a cute light display, being there a couple time during da day, didn`t seem so cool

    I`ve seen some of these before but some of them are so incredibly cute! But also, most of them do look a bit tacky. But they`re still pretty cool. :D

    23. Ryugyong Hotel (Pyongyang, North Korea)

    I lost interest there. There`s nothing incredible about that building. It was created by starving North Koreans under poor safety regulations. An average of 1 person died per day during its year-long construction. And the resulting structure is not even complete or open. What is built isn`t even structurally sound.

    It`s 150 stories of waste, and it stands as proof of Kim Jong-Il`s despicability and his oppressive rule in his egomaniacal father`s name.

    If you click the Continue to part to and see number 6... that was at burning man `07 and the outside doesn`t do it justice. Inside everything is true to that style from the books on the shelves to the furniture. There is an elevator inside and a balcony on the roof that overlooked the black rock playa. My friend that went there with me and I still try to describe it to people.

    Great list, but they missed the EMP (Experience Music Project) in Seattle. I`m not saying I particularly like it, but it definitely out-weirds most of the stuff on the list by a pretty wide margin.

    I remember seeing some of these in an email my dad got. They`re so amazingly cool, it impresses me what people are willing to come up with, with enough dedication and intelligence.
    It makes me slightly more hopeful for the future. (:
    I would live in that library in number six. It`s absolutely beautiful.
    Chapel rock in number eleven is sick. I would actually look forward to going to church on Sunday if that was the building.
    OMG! Someone graffitied on the dividing by zero house?! How dare thee!
