Equihen Plage, on the coast of northern France by the English Channel, is a small seaside village with a population of about 3,000. Up until the beginning of the 20th century, Equihen Plage was a fishing village with a dry harbor—the kind where fishing boats were launched into the sea by sliding them on logs. Today, the village is famous for its many inverted boat houses—locally known as “quilles en l'air”—that serve as unique holiday accommodation for travellers.

For a cool 1.4 mil, you could own this 3/2 Frank Lloyd Wright on almost 4 acres near downtown Minneapolis. Gorgeous.

These photos of ice-engulfed lighthouses are sure to send shivers down your spine. Formed under very specific circumstances, these pasty kraken emerge annually on the shoreline of Lake Michigan each winter. Their alluring formations are enough to entice the hot-weather-loving photographer, Tom Gill, to photograph their sculptural encasings every year.

At first glance, the structure reminds you of one of the MC Escher drawings or prints. But it really exists. Click and arrow-key to navigate your way through this gallery and resources on the building.

If you go to Rockport someday, in Massachusetts, the United States, take some time to drive down Pigeon Hill Street and look out for a sign that says "Paper House". Park your car near the sidewalk and go visit this unique, one story red house that looks like an ordinary log cabin, but is actually made of paper.

France is most well-known for its obvious and iconic tourist attractions: the Eiffel Tower, the Alps, the glamorous riviera. But beyond all the grandeur and gloss, some of the country's most magical and breathtaking places are those that are abandoned, derelict, even falling apart. Intrepid urban explorers set out, cameras in hand, to photograph them, and we curated some of their most stunning shots here to take you on this, a gloriously haunting but ever-so-beautiful tour of abandoned France.

In central Arizona there exists an experimental town called Arcosanti. It's built on the principles of arcology, which combines architecture and ecology to envision a city that works in tandem with the Earth's resources. In this short documentary, The Atlantic goes inside this distinctive urban space to understand how Arcosanti plans to reconstruct how humans envision cities.

Like paintings and sculptures, buildings can be beautiful works of art.

We asked architects to tell us the one building that's a game-changer for building design, inspired them to become architects, or that they simply find stunning.

Here are 19 of the most breathtaking buildings in the world, according to people who build them for a living.

Architect McBride Charles Ryan mixed his field of predilection with sculpture for his new project Klein Bottle House, that he built in Rye, Australia. The outlines of the building are extremely raw and give life to very geometric shapes. The rendering looks like a geometric sculpture that grew straight from the ground.

The luxurious Hotel del Salto opened in 1928 to welcome wealthy travelers visiting the Tequendama Falls area, in Colombia. So where did it all go wrong? Unfortunately, due to non existent regulations of Colombian authorities, the Bogota river was allowed to become contaminated by industrial waste. The reputation of the area as a tourist destination was badly damaged as a result, and tourists quickly stopped visiting.

The $12 million project, managed by Tishman Construction Corporation, came about in May 2014 when an ornamental plaster rosette fell 52 feet from the Reading Room's ceiling. To mark the occasion, the NYPL has shared an incredible collection of photographs documenting the restoration work and the Rose Main Reading Room with nearly all scaffolding removed.

A combination of roadside attraction novelty and greater architectural freedom resulted in some very strange 20th-century buildings. Below are 23 examples of this novelty architecture. In almost all the cases, the owners wanted to use their buildings to proclaim what they were selling inside.

Here in Phoenix, we have Metrocenter - Arizona's largest mall when it was built in the early 70's, now it's the dirt mall and dying fast. Take this virtual tour and marvel at its increasingly abandoned majesty, with 22 nodes of 360-degree panoramic views, set to the theme from Dawn of the Dead. Glorious.
