Friday curiosities

A building theme this week to distract you before the weekend. From tree churches in New Zealand to AT-AT shaped Saunas in Sweden we have nowhere near, it all.

Talking of saunas – the world’s largest sauna has just moved from Norway to Greenland.

That may sound crazy but nowhere near as crazy as the guys who wanted to build Minas Tirith in Worcestershire. They fell only slightly short of their $1.8 billion crowdfunding target.

But unlikely buildings do pop up in unlikely places. Like the King Chulalongkorn Memorial for example. It is an ornate Thai pavilion built, that’s right, in the middle of Sweden.

And to finish on a slightly more serious note – get used to hearing about passive houses because we’re going to need them.
