In the world of architecture, art has become one of the main focuses in order to create a stunning building design. Even the most amazing buildings generally represent a function or something in them.
Like the buildings of medieval relics in Europe. It is no longer a secret that Europe is home to some of the most amazing building designs in the world. But with the times, the most amazing building designs in the world can certainly be found in several places, not only in Europe. Want to know what building designs are the most amazing in the world? Lets, just look at!
1. Kunsthaus Graz Building Design in Austria
Kunsthaus Graz has a building design that really contrasts with the design of other buildings in the vicinity. Located in the City of Graz, Austria, the design of this building was initiated by two British architects named Peter Cook and Colin Fournie.
Built in 2003, the construction itself was made to appreciate European cultural celebrations. What many people don’t know is that this unique and amazing building is an art museum.
Kunsthaus Graz is also referred to as the “Alien House” because its form is completely different and may only exist in science fiction films. Kunsthaus Graz, which has round window protrusions on its roof, occupies an area of more than 11 thousand square meters.
What is unique about the Kunsthaus Graz building design is that it is made of 900 neon decorative ring lights that make it look like a series of very large pixels.
The design of this navy blue building is unusual and differs freely from the context of conventional exhibition museum building design because in Europe generally the art museum building design maintains the modernist tradition of the White Cube.
But at Kunsthaus Graz, the team of architects used an innovative style idiom known as blob architecture in the historical atmosphere of Murvorstadt.
2. Design of Kinemax Buildings in France
Watching a cinema in a mall might have become commonplace. For those of you who really like film, it might not hurt once in a lifetime to visit Kinemax in France, which first opened in 1987 because the architectural masterpieces are truly magnificent and beautiful.
From the exterior, the design of the Kinemax building resembles a giant crystal that pops up from the plains of land like chunks of crystals that fall from the sky.
This 35-meter-high building has 3000 mirror plates that surround it and reflect the environment with deformations in random directions such as Picasso’s cubist paintings , symbolizing the intelligence and perfection of nature.
On the interior side, the building design on Kinemax has a high resolution widescreen display where the screen itself is twice the size of a tennis court with a room that can accommodate 440 seats .
The location of the Kinemax in front of an artificial lake is very beautiful and increasingly reveals building designs that are made to add a sensation before and after watching a film.
3. Design of Krzywy Domek Building in Poland
The design of the Krzywy Domek building or in Indonesian means Crooked House, was first designed in 2004 by two architects named Szotynscy and Zaleski.
With an area of 4,000 square meters, Krzywy Domek itself is one part of the Rezydent Shopping Center in Poland. By the two architects, Krzywy Domek’s inspiration came from images from the fables of Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg.
From the front, the uniquely creamy Krzywy Domek building design is clearly visible due to its contorted shape. When night falls, Krzywy Domek featuring lights yellowish shining and made it seem so mysterious.
But in it, just like a row of ordinary shops. Indeed the appeal of this building’s design is its exterior that makes us realize that tangible optical illusions do exist in Poland.
4. Design the Nautilus House Building in Mexico
While buildings are generally made using materials such as cement, iron or brick material , in Mexico there is a building that is not just a unique shape, but also the material it is made of. Nautilus House, that’s the name of the building. The building turned out to use shells as the main ingredient.
The Nautilus House building design was coined by an architect named Javier Senosiain. This beautiful building to see is made from selected conch shells.
The structure of this building is very smooth and has spiral shaped stairs. Javier Senosiain built Nautilus House with the intention to bring life in water into an architecture, inspired by the work of Gaudi and Frank Lloyd Wright, then Bio-Architecture was born.
The design of this building displays striking pieces on a glass wall that has colorful hues with dots. The building design on the interior of Nautilus House has 3 floors.
Inside there are small plants that line up to accompany each step of the inhabitants. The cream-colored shells wall creates an atmosphere that is so natural and in accordance with the concept it carries.
5. Design Crazy House Buildings in Vietnam
Close to Indonesia and still in the Southeast Asian region, people might not think that the towering wooden chunk is Crazy House or better known as Hang Nga Guesthouse. Located in the city of Da Lat, the design of the building that was carried by an architect named Dang Viet Nga was inspired by fairy tales and natural structures and the surrounding environment.
The exterior design of the building resembles a banyan tree, with uneven window openings and branched structures that grow along its walls and soar upwards. The interior design of the building presents 10 rooms, each of which has its own “animal” theme.
For example, there are tiger rooms, eagle rooms, kangaroo rooms, and others that each decor matches the theme. In the eagle’s room there is a statue of an eagle flapping its wings, as well as in a kangaroo’s room which incorporates a fireplace located in a kangaroo’s stomach pouch.
Broadly speaking, the Crazy House building design presents something different and gives a soothing impression because the dimness in the building is accompanied by natural colors that are not conspicuous.
6. Automium Building Design in Belgium
Atomium is an iconic building in Brussels, Belgium, which stands 102 meters high. The design of this building consists of nine spherical rooms with a diameter of 18 meters each with stainless steel as the building material.
Automium is also a monument that was built in the framework of Expo ’58, a World’s Fair in 1958. The spherical shape connected to each other makes everything interconnected. The process of making an Automium building design is through an iron crystal cell unit that is enlarged 165 billion times.
In the Automium building design, the color of chrome is chosen to show modernity and ideas inspired by science. Each ball is connected to an escalator in cylinders reaching 114.8 feet. The window on the topmost ball presents a view of Brussels.
While the other balls display exhibitions in the 1950s except for the three balls that are closed to visitors because they do not have vertical support.
7. Design the Guggenheim Museum Building in Spain
The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is a museum of modern and contemporary art, whose building design was designed by Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry, built by Ferrovial, and located in Bilbao, the Basque Country, Spain.

Guggenheim is one of several museums owned by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and is the building most often cited as one of the most important works completed since 1980 in the 2010 World Architecture Survey among architectural experts.
The exterior side of the building design made with shiny stones appear random, which is intended to capture light from the direction of the rising sun because the arches tend to head east. The interior side focuses on the mouth of the Bilbao river.
