    I don't agree with the #1. I think #2 belongs in it's spot.

    Plus I think the Seattle's music building is more eccentric than the Guggenheim Museum.

    But that is all my opinion.

    What about the Hotel Unique in Sao Paulo, the Bank of Hong Kong building, or the Fuji TV building in Tokyo?

    They may need flamethrowers to fend off the giant spider attacking the Guggenheim at #10.

    It’s a good list, I just think there are ones better than #10.

    These are good, but did you consider the Hundertwasser House in Vienna?

    Thank you Jim

    I wasn't aware of the Hundertwasserhaus and I enjoyed learning about it.

    Considering Gehry's work eccentrinc is a common mistake. His work, wether you like it or not, is sound and worth learning from, but not eccentric.

    On the other hand, to consider Gaudi's work eccentric is a huge mistake. His work is not only sound but a masterpiece of structural investigation, craftsmanship and expertise, (never art despite its fabulous sculptures). To have the Sagrada Familia among these joke of buildings is a shame.

    Miguel, I know where you're coming from. All these architects are 'sound'. They have to be incredibly accomplished to do the designs they do.

    I use the word,'Eccentric', as a compliment, not an insult, in the sense that they are outside of the commonplace. The Sagrada Familia is my favourite building in the world because it is so beautiful.

    I must disagree. All the other designs don't come from accomplishment but from lack of "sense", artisticity and even irony. The foundations of an architectural way of designing are way beyond those concepts.

    Some of these buildings are actually looking weird but some of the designs are quite creative. It was good to have a look at them. Thanks!
