18 of the Most Unique, Strange, Unusual Houses Ever Built
12.Fat House, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, UK
Disappointed with the 1950s architecture in Vienna, Austrian artist Erwin Wurm designed a series of “fat” objects, including a house, a truck, a sausage dog and a series of cars, to bring a sense of humor and lightheartedness to serious objects.
Wurm is well known for his unusual sculpture, which invites people to consider new possibilities in the way things are designed. His Melting House sculptures are based on the Fat sculptures and look like melted ice cream, using the same materials (polyurethane foam and Styrofoam covered with lacquer).
