7 of the Most Unusual and Weird Buildings in America



Looking at unusual buildings is always a feast for the eyes. The reason why unpredictable architecture captures attention is because of the way they break stereotypes. Their architecture is more than uniform structures since nobody adores monotonicity.

Following are 7 most unusual and weird buildings in America. You would surely want to add them to your bucket list.

1. The World's Largest Basket Building in Newark, Ohio

This is no ordinary basket, but a giant one; straight out of some fairy tale. It is worth applauding at 7 stories tall, formerly being the headquarter for the Longaberger Basket Company. Its interior is equally stunning as its exterior, complete with marbled floors and plush exquisite furniture. It does not have the corporate office vibe and this is why we adore it.

2. The Kansas City Public Library in Kansas City, Missouri

It looks like a giant version of the library itself, which is the front facet of the Kansas City Public Library in Kansas City Missouri. The notable aspect of this beauty is the hard binding of the 22 most famous books in literature. Since considering the opinion of an individual would be unfair, the city administration held a poll and left it to the people to decide.
