From Cliffhanger Homes to Floating Ghost Houses

 - Jun 14, 2012
Sure to be a bit off-putting to some, these startling suspended structures show how far architectural design has come over the years.

Taking things from functional to just plain fun, suspended living is not for everyone, but is undeniably impressive. Often requiring immense planning and careful execution, hanging houses, tents and even jacuzzis are a huge hit and draw lots of attention. Whether a structure is fully suspended or partially hanging off of a cliff, there's an exhilarating feeling one gets just by looking at these masterpieces. Certainly more exciting than run-of-the-mill architecture, these creations are often more futuristic than most.

Bizarre, intimidating and often beautiful, these suspended hangouts could very well be the future of design.
