This IG Page Documents Ugly Houses Seen In The Netherlands, And They’re So Bad, It’s Hilarious (30 Pics)

When talking about architecture, there’s a fine line between creative and ridiculous. Bold and funny. Tasteful and appalling. And when a project crosses it, people often notice. And shame it.

Ugly Dutch Houses is an Instagram account that does just that. Radiating a similar vibe as its Irish and Belgian “cousins”, this online project shares photos of structures that it believes to deserve the demolition crane. Or at least a good makeover.

And it’s quite thirsty, too. “I will look for you, I will find you and I will post you,” the bio of the Insta says. Liam Neeson approves!

30 Of The Most Unusual Buildings From All Over The World

Everyone can design a box with some windows and call it a house – but it takes a skilled architect to design a building that not only meets the client’s requirements and functions well but also looks aesthetically pleasing. However, sometimes architects let their imaginations run a little too wild, and end up producing buildings that could best be described as simply “bizarre”.

Inspired by the weirdest architectural creations from all over the world, someone started a whole subreddit dedicated entirely to them. It’s called Bizarre Buildings, and its 131k+ members regularly share the most odd and funny buildings they managed to spot – check it out in the gallery below!

This Plant-Covered Hotel Will Reinvent The Historic District Of São Paulo

The guys at Paris-based architecture firm Ateliers Jean Nouvel have teamed up with the developer Alexandre Allard to come up with this amazing plant-covered luxury hotel design that is set to revive the historic district in São Paulo, Brazil.

A 550,000 square-metre complex of historic buildings is being regenerated in the city’s centre and includes the former Filomena Matarazzo maternity hospital: “The hospital in the middle of the grounds is a sort of mini-town, very well organised around patios, and surrounding this little gem is a chaotic metropolis,” said Nouvel.

Dutch Couple Moves Into The First 3D-Printed Concrete House In The Netherlands

Back on the 30th of April, a Dutch couple received the keys to the first Dutch 3D-printed concrete home.

Wood Meets Architecture by Henrique Oliveira

The work of Henrique Oliveira crosses the genres of architecture and art, questioning the perceptions and labels of sculpture and painting. Describing himself primarily as a painter, Oliveira has nonetheless embarked on the creation of imposing sculptures made of wood. They occupy living spaces by invading rooms, windows…as if nature powerfully regained the upper hand over urbanization.
