The Waldspirale building in Darmstadt, Germany looks like an elvish eco-castle. Its curving, layered look is heightened by the fact that grass, trees, and shrubs grow all over its exterior. And nearly every part of it is customized.
According to Damn Cool Pics:
[It was] designed by Austrian artist, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, and built during the 1990s . . . Its diagonal roof is covered with grass, shrubs and trees and the facade follows an irregular grid organization. Waldspirale has over 1,000 windows, but no two are the same. The handles on the apartment doors and the windows are also unique.
And yes, people have been living here for almost a decade. This is the perfect wedding of beauty and high-density.
