26 Fairytale-Inspired Structures

From Enchanting Fairytale Resorts to Cubic Fairytale Architecture

— July 31, 2013 — Art & Design
These inventive fairytale-inspired structures are some fantastic examples of how architects have infused their love for childhood fantasy references into these larger-than-life creations.

There's a reason why fairytale stories have become classic pieces of literature for both children and adults alike. The use of romantic themes, beautifully grand costumes and stunning castles serves to make these stories simply magical to the reader. That's why incorporating these fairytale elements into architectural designs is a creative way to bring these whimsical elements into the real world. From miniature castles built in the backyard of homes to structures inspired by the eclectic scenes in Alice in Wonderland, these fairytale-inspired designs are bringing imaginative features into these otherwise ordinary structures.
