We as a people have erected many buildings. Humans have done a lot more in terms
of structural significance than those lazy-ass lions or beavers (maybe
try a skyscraper instead of a dam?) and for every Empire State Building or Great Pyramid or… Gherkin, something will be created that leaves onlookers with a sense of horror.
Occasionally in an effort to not only house and protect but also to inspire, architects sometimes fall short and leave observers baffled, alienated, and
somewhat unnerved by buildings and monuments. We’re going to be
really shallow here and only concern ourselves what what’s on the
outside, as sinister interiors are a whole other can of worrisome
worms (as a freebie do have a quick search for Otranto Cathedral
and be prepared for some nightmares).
aside, it must be stated that just because a building appears ominous
on the outside doesn’t mean it houses some sinister action or work of
malevolence. In fact many serve innocent functions and most are
actually architectural marvels – just that on first impression
there is definitely something creepy about them.
