* ''TabletopGame/AnimaBeyondFantasy'' has its share too. One notable example is Ascani, the main city of Bellafonte (sort of {{Expy}} of medieval Italy), built almost entirely over platforms sustained by massive rocky columns that are connected using a lot of footbridges and rams.

* Orlando, Florida's "[[http://www.wonderworksonline.com/ Wonderworks]]," which is built to resemble a stately museum... lifted off its foundations and turned-upside-down.

* The city of Oubliette on terraformed Mars featured in Hannu Rajaniemi's TheQuantumThief'' is built on the backs of titanic Atlas Quiets, uploaded human minds controlling gigantic robots. In result it's always on the move, and its layout is constantly changing as the Quiets move around each other. As far as bizarreness of architecture goes, it's actually one of the more ''normal'' locations in the novel's transhuman future.

* ''Webcomic/ZebraGirl'': Sandra's house became quite an odd place after the timeskip, gaining several floors and having walls made of stairs.



* Sumdac Tower in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' is inexplicably shaped like a giant sparkplug. How it remains standing is a mystery for the ages. Quite possibly because [[spoiler: of the technology Sumdac reverse engineered from Megatron's head. No, really, that's why Earth has robots]].

* The (in)famous ''[[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/81/Braunschweig%2C_Happy_RIZZI_House.jpg Happy RIZZI House]]'' at the edge of the Magniviertel of the city of Brunswick (Braunschweig), Germany. The monstrosity was perpetrated by the American Pop-art commercial artist James Rizzi who designed it and the German architect who built the house, and somehow the officials were pressured or bribed to go along with it, despite everyone else hating it. The house's right at the edge of what was once the center of the medieval town, right next to some traditional timber-framed houses and the St. Magni church that survived UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. It was ''supposed'' to look similar to the famous Hundertwasser House in Vienna, but where the Hundertwasser House is playful and colorful with gentle organic lines, the RIZZI House is just... just... stupid. Like a cartoon house in a kindergarten. It's neither functional nor aesthetic. Actually trying to work in there must be a nightmare. Worse, it's now right between the old church on one side and the newly reconstructed classicistic facade of the [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/10/ECE_Schloss_06u07_1b.jpg Braunschweiger Residenzschloss]], first built in 1718, rebuilt in 1830 after a fire, heavily damaged in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, demolished and rebuilt as a shopping center in 2007.

* ''{{Manga/Uzumaki}}'' has an UndergroundCity where all of the buildings are spirals, interwoven and twisting over an area of several square miles. [[spoiler:This enormous structure is an actively malevolent GeniusLoci that seems to underlie the problems faced by the protagonists]].

** The TARDIS in almost every ''Doctor Who'' episode every made (aside from parts of the 3rd Doctor's run), which is "bigger on the inside than on the outside." It has miles of hallways, multi-level wardrobes with spiral staircases and balconies, a boot cupboard the size of a ''bedroom'', laboratories and medical bays, and ''multiple'' swimming pools. Not to mention the giant room containing a star just to fuel the thing. The whole thing fits in a package the exact size and shape of a 1950's British police box.
*** And, every time the Tardis rebuilds itself, it gets a whole new floorplan. The swimming pool just might be ''in'' the library.

* The Western Air Temples in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' are built upside down on the bottom face of a cliff. Perhaps not impossible, but certainly questionable. There are also examples of a temple built on the cracks of an active volcano, and a prison built of metal on a lake which somehow sits inside a volcano.

The DVDCommentary half-jokingly suggests they had to contract the construction to a bunch of [[DishingOutDirt Earthbenders]].
