Unearthly Architecture: 13 Structures That Look Like Aliens Built Them

[ By SA Rogers in Architecture & Cities & Urbanism. ]

Some strike a somewhat ominous tone while others are almost cartoonish in their Space Age aesthetics. Many of these alienesque buildings are designed by just a handful of architecture firms with a flair for dramatic silhouettes – Zaha Hadid, MAD and Delugan Meissl being chief among them.

Text description provided by the architects. Our inspiration for the project lay in the established backyard which sat sunken down slightly from the surrounding. The brief was to add a new living room space, kitchen and accompanying dining room. We particularly wanted to have the living room feel very much like a pavilion in the garden, however we saw this as an enclosed and protected space as much as it needed to be connected to the garden. We created a brick wall that enveloped the upper level which was then suspended above glass doors and windows below.

Text description provided by the architects. The spatiality of the project was born from the resolution of the section of the house with the land of 35% slope. We interpret that access to the project should be by the lowest point of the lot with respect to the route of the subdivision; from there a first volume was born that contains the entire service area of the house and the main access as Zaguán.
