The creepiest buildings in the world

This is a thread for posting pics of creepy/weird looking buildings.

The Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang, aka "The Mordor Hilton." I had never seen it before and it's so horrifying it's almost hilarious. It really looks like the Minitrue building from "1984"

Riverside Hospital (the Bronx)




Boston City Hall



The abandoned Detroit Central Station



This is a site worth checking out...

I've seen this place from a very close distance, and driving at night close to it looks even more creepier!

They have resumed construction of the Ryugyong hotel, at least the exterior.

Re: The creepiest buildings in the world

It's funny how so many of these sites look like Video Games settings. Some of the more extravagant building look like buildings in Japanese games. I googled "Linda Vista Hospital", which is an abandoned building here in LA famous for Paranormal activity, and some of the shots taken inside look like the settings in BIOSHOCK 1 and 2.

These old flak towers are in Germany and Austria. They were a combination of bomb shelter and positions for light and heavy anti-aircraft guns.

Re: The creepiest buildings in the world

I was just thinking about this very subject the other day, I meant to google this subject but never got around to it. Great idea for a thread.
