This humorous fish-shaped building is a regional office for the National Fisheries Development Board located near Hyderabad, India.

This is a 7-storey building that shaped like a ‘Basket’. This monument is, in fact, the world’s largest basket, and it’s also the seven-story corporate headquarters of the Longaberger Basket Company. The basket is a replica — 160 times larger — of Longaberger’s Medium Market Basket.
Dancing House is set in a fine location by the Vltava River in Prague. Its design is unique, and especially striking in the city centre because it is a modern building surrounded by historic architecture.
The Robot Building, located in the Sathorn business district of Bangkok, Thailand houses. It was designed for the Bank of Asia to reflect the computerization of banking; its architecture is a reaction against neoclassical and high tech postmodern architecture. The building’s features progressively receding walls, antennas, and eyes, which contribute to its robotic appearance. Completed in 1986, the building is one of the last examples of modern architecture in Bangkok.

The Cubic Houses, a magnificent architectural wonder located in Rotterdam, Netherlands. They were conceived and constructed by architect Piet Blom in the 1970s.
