Eccentric and unusual houses have always been the norm in the exception. That’s why we’re bringing a list of the strangest and most futuristic houses in the world because the weird should not only be celebrated, it should be shared.

1 – Seashell House, Mexico City
An actual giant seashell-shaped house. And no, it wasn’t built in LA, or by some eccentric billionaire, or anything pertaining to that order of common-nonsense. It was actually commissioned by a family of four and projected by the architecture studio Arquitectura Organica. The house itself seems like it came straight off the weirdest Disney fantasy movie, but just imagine waking up inside that marvelous seashell. Just don’t get depressed because, like me, yours is completely vanilla.
2 – The Brooklyn Clock Tower Home, New York
The second one on this list pertains to that category of people discussed earlier, but it is still unbelievably dazzling, albeit much more realistic than the previous seashell-inspired abode. The Brooklyn Tower House looks like it could be the house (or hideout) of a superhero, or supervillain. Hell, even a Bond villain would fit somewhat well with the décor.
Now for something not more futuristic than the last two (it’s in the title of the article, after all) but also weird. Built on S. Michael Island in the Azores Archipelago Azores, Portugal, this project boasts an impressive design which not only has that “days yet to come” feeling to yet but, according to the architects, was also built with the intent to reduce the hardships of the islands frequent wind and rain showers.
4 – Villa Kogelhof, Noord Beveland, Netherlands
Despite the fact that some of you won’t rightly consider this house too futuristic, I beg to differ. It offers a minimalistic-futuristic design, it is mostly self-sufficient, and so click that even Bruce Wayne would live here, were he tired of his family’s mansion. Hey, isn’t the future renewable energies anyway? There you go, futuristic!
5 – The Sleeper (or Sculptured) House, Colorado
What were you expecting? It was mentioned in the opening paragraph of this whole ordeal. It is a classic of unconventional house design and form, and it has been printed in our cultural DNA (pop-culture DNA, that is) by a whole variety of artists, shows, and movies. You got to admit, it looks straight out of the Jetsons, or maybe even Star Trek.
6 – Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania
This is a legendary house in its own right. After all, Frank Lloyd Wright designed it, and the man has more than printed his mark on the annals of architectural and design history. Everyone knows this one. You know this one. Unborn babies know this one. Even the Egyptians took inspiration from the man to build the pyramids. But it is just a timeless classic, and I’d rightfully say it classifies as strange. It sits atop a waterfall, doesn’t it?
