Very difficult to show the beauty of this building with one picture, but the Glasgow School of Art:

I think the details are what makes it such a cool building.

It is. The inside is even more amazing. I have pictures backed up on a CD somewhere...if I ever root it out of storage I'll post them here.

Isn't it? All of Antoni Gaudi's buildings have a sort of surreal art nouveau vibe that I just adore. Definitely google the interior, it's phenomenal.

I think I read an article about houses like these. They're made with densely packed straw and covered in clay, energy efficient and environmentally friendly. They're popular in the Mid West and in parts of California, very DIY in comparison to other houses.
