South Korea's Sim Jae-duck, known as Mayor Toilet, has found a toilet-shaped home, and it's no doubt the only one of its kind in the whole universe. Sim Jae-Duck has a really good reason for doing so as he was in fact born within one. The building opened to celebrate the launch of the World Toilet Association, and Sim Jae-Duck now lives in this Toilet House.

Polish architects just love confusing designs and this one is no doubt the best demonstration. The Crooked House is in fact not a house, but the front of a shopping center.

England's architecture is mostly known for its wild and wacky, and this ordinary barn conversion is however very dramatic. The entire outside of the house can be removed, sliding on old railroad tracks, leaving a glass copy, light flooding into every room, so people could enjoy the outside no matter how the weather is like.
If you ever dreamed of going into the space, this space house would make your dream come true. Curtis King and his sons created it in the 1970s, just when the space age and the space race filled people's minds. In March 2008, it was sold. But there is still a chance to make this amazing house yours.
