30 Eerie Architectural Designs

From Skeletal Ripple Structures to Spine Chilling Taverns

— August 16, 2013 — Art & Design
Architects are constantly striving to create designs and structures that are different and unique, and these eerie architectural designs are some creative examples of how infusing morbid and spooky references can create a visually striking appearance.

While Halloween is traditionally the designated time of year to scare people with spooky costumes and hauntingly scary references, designers have been utilizing those eerie elements to create products and structures that portray a more mysterious and frightening vibe. A fantastic way to stand out from the more ordinary buildings and city structures, these eerie architectural designs will definitely have people gasping at the mere sight of them.

From mangled anatomical architecture to chained office buildings, these eerie architectural designs will surely have people stopping in their tracks to view these spooky structures.
