Eccentric Architecture

Here is a small round-up of my favorite examples of eccentric architecture. I decided to consciously avoid including obvious buildings, anything by Gaudí, and items covered by other sources. I haven't been to Belgium yet, but have personally explored out in and around the "Crooked House" in the beautiful city of Sopot on the Baltic coast and also checked out Otto Wagner's floral ceramic covered Majolika Haus while in Vienna. As you can see, I'm largely drawn to art nouveau / jugendstil.
