Emily’s Team Pick: 33 Strange Buildings

These are 33 of the world’s strangest buildings. I’d like to note a few things: 1) 3 of these buildings are featured in Montreal, my hometown! The olympic stadium is not actually that cool, guys. 2) but the twisty building in Dubai is SO COOL. 3) the 31st building looks like an overturned pig.

Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.
