The fast food restaurant is a fixture of urban, suburban and rural America, appealing to people from every age group, income bracket and ethnic background. It’s as close as you can get in the United States to something everyone can agree on.

However, not all of the ideas can be on a par with the Big Mac, and sometimes, they fall squarely into the “what were they thinking?” category, as anyone who’s tried to eat a McLobster sandwich can attest.

12 Out-of-the-Box Architectural Oddities

This might look like it was built once upon a time but the Hundertwasser Tower was actually completed in 2010.

15 Funniest Women on TV Right Now

Transforming old buildings into something new is hip and, under the watchful eye of innovative public administration, can do great things for cities. Washington Times writer Lisa Rauschart says, “Repurposed buildings often allow for mixed-use opportunities and the introduction of residences into neighborhoods that once had little life on evenings and weekends.” According to Rauschart, repurposing is also a great way for urban planners and city officials “to broaden an area’s economic base.” Abandoned historic buildings, run-down remnants of once-thriving industries, and even old vehicles can all be brought back to life. It seems that the only limit to adapting these spaces is our imaginations.
