The round gray ball house should be panted like the “DEATH STAR“, and the white round hurricanes house should be red, blue & gray making it look like the Kids space ship in the 80’s movie “EXPLORER‘S“.

At least then these ugly houses can have a claim on character.

Making the bad style choices make sense.

If you take the time and money to build a weird looking house why, other than death, would you move out? No one else will share your vision or really care. What a waste of time and money.

The old Victor Johnston place on Senna st. in Las Cruces, NM has a strange dome shape that's pretty memorable. Came with a hot, frigid redhead too.

Sam Houston lived in a house that looked like a steamboat in Huntsville, TX.  He allowed relatives to live there free but it was too wierd for them.  You had to work at it to out wierd Sam Houston.

I was in the USAF and stationed at Klamath CA. about 30miles south of Crescent City.  I saw this Log house along hwy 101 and I thought it was at Trees of mystery north of Klamath?  1962 to 1966.

It looks nice but they 'just moved out' . Why? Toxic waste? meth labs nearby? freeway moved in next door?   If you dont want it anymore why would I?

Do an online search for Scott Eller home in Greensburg, KS.  It looks like a bra.

'Theory of Iceality' Applied to Private  Urban Dwellings (Real Estate)

The "Theory of Iceality" is the Aesthetics of the relationship between Humans and their Environment through the Arts, ultimately promoting an effective sustainable global Culture of Peace. At the ARK in Berea, David Jakupca states that, "The special 'Theory of Iceality' belongs to a class of "principle-theories". As such it employs an analytic method. This means that the three elements which comprise this theory, Humanitarian, Environmental, Arts and Culture, are not based on hypothesis but on empirical discovery. The empirical discovery leads to understanding the general characteristics of natural processes".

Practical models can then be developed which separate the natural processes into theoretical-mathematical descriptions. Therefore, by analytical means the necessary conditions that have to be satisfied are deduced. Separate events must satisfy these conditions. Experience should then match the conclusions.

The special 'Theory of Iceality' and the general natural processes are connected. As stated above, the special 'Theory of Iceality' applies to all inertial physical phenomena and its relation to all other forces of nature.

Although it is widely acknowledged that American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca are the creators of the Theory of Iceality in its modern understanding, not all of the Jakupca's contemporaries accepted the new theory at once. However, the Theory of Iceality is now considered as the cornerstone of the modern sustainable global Environmental Art Movement and replicated throughout the World.

'ICEALITY" is the measure of the connection between arts, civic engagement and the environment, which can be defined as promoting a sustainable positive and peaceful quality of life for all people.

This is a collection of semi cool homes with a misleading headline.

I am a bit surprised. These aren't that extraordinary. I've seen a lot of more interesting homes. What about the house built into a sand dune? There are houses a lot more hobbit house looking. What about the houses built in caves, in old fallout shelters and missile silos?
Not trying to be contentious, but there are a lot of interesting houses... more so than this article.

I remember my parents taking me to see a house hollowed out of a tree some time back in the early 1950's.  The person who owned it was traveling around the country showing it.  Of course that was about 60 years ago and memory fails, but I suspect this is the same one.  I often wondered what happened to it.

I saw a design which used long ribbons of cloth, loaded with the local fill dirt or sand, & piled up into a parabolic arch.  Space was left for windows & doors, which became more dormer like the higher they were on the structure.  The result was a dome, based on almost any polygonal, circular, or even elliptical floor plan, made of sand bags.

Fire & flood resistive, & effectively wind-proof, these structures had a life expectancy of 2,000 years.  They are literally dirt cheap to build.
