    I couldn’t help but “crack up” at this one! I know, that was a terrible pun…but seriously my first reaction was to just laugh! So perfect for the Easter weekend, hope you have a great one!

    Amazing architectures! I am in love with the Beijing Opera House. It looks like it’s floating on/ surrounded by water. Would love to visit some of these places one day!

    Happy Easter!

    Of course there are buildings and sculptures in the shapes of Eggs out there. Actually I did not know that. I wonder when the US will get one? Fun post!

    Have a Happy Easter!

    I really like the Ukrainian Easter egg, but the buildings are marvelous. I like them all, but I think the picture of the Beijing Opera House is my favorite.

  18. cafenoHut am 23.04.2011 um 00:36 Uhr 

    These are unique. I would like to see every one.
    enjoy your weekend and happy easter.

    Oh What lovely finds! Pinteresting it!

  24. Danielle@freshquince am 23.04.2011 um 16:08 Uhr 

    Just brilliant…I’ve never seen any of these places. An egg is such a unique shape and I don’t believe I would have ever thought to use it as inspiration for architecture, but the effect is brilliant! Thanks for sharing and I wish you a happy love filled Easter as well! xx Danielle

    Hi, Maria!
    It’s not secret that I love all your posts, but this one is off-beat.
    I wonder how interesting could be to have a long talk with the creative minds who designed these buildings.
    A happy and blessed aster to you and your family.

    Nice post for Easter :D Didn’t know there were actually so many buildings looking like eggs.

  33. Linda [the young curator] am 26.04.2011 um 09:23 Uhr 

    what sweet egg structures!

    i wonder if they would fit in the beijing olympics birds nest stadium ;]

  34. Joan am 27.04.2011 um 22:49 Uhr 

    Very cool egg designed buildings! The opera house in China looks so beautiful and the Ukrainian Easter egg is cool! Great post, check out also 3D Rendering

    Great images!

    A couple of them remind me of Chicago’s “Cloud Gate”, while not technically egg-shaped (it’s nickname is “The Bean”), could easily fit in this theme:
