Gallery: Top 6 Creepiest Buildings for a Frightful Halloween

 
Nothing is more frightening to the imagination than sharing space with hundreds of dead bodies, and while we don’t recommend you try that at home, you can at this ancient crypt in London that has been reborn as a The Crypt Gallery. Located in London's St. Pancras Parish Church and host to 557 grave sites, the gallery is ideal among artists who are interested in a moody, ghoulish venue to display their art.

Check out the 6 Creepiest Buildings for a Frightful Halloween:

GEOtube is a Building That Grows its Own Weblike Saline Skin

Ancient London Crypt Resurrected as a Creepy Contemporary Art Gallery

Wim Delvoye’s Creepy Stained Glass Windows are Made from Recycled X-Rays

SPOOKY ECO HOUSE: The Dragspelhuset Accordion House

GEOtube is a Building That Grows its Own Weblike Saline Skin

The GEOtube was designed by Faulders Studio for a specific site in Dubai. Situated very close to the salty Persian Gulf, this building has a creepy saline skin that appears to grow on its own. Water from the Gulf is transported to the building via a 4.62 km buried pipeline and then misted onto the envelope. Once the water evaporates, all that is left behind is this web-like salt crystal structure!

Wim Delvoye’s Creepy Stained Glass Windows are Made from Recycled X-Rays

If you have any spare x-rays lying around, why not follow Wim Delvoye’s lead and make crazy windows for your own haunted house? The artist has turned a pile of discarded x-rays into what look like ordinary stained glass windows that are in fact covered in bones and skeletons. Amazingly, x-rays reflect light in the same way as colored glass. This will really creep out the neighbors!

    I don’t find any of these buildings scary or creepy, I find them melancholy at best. Actually I find most rather peaceful even graceful. I love that people have such different interpretations in things. Although I must disagree with the authors labeling of these buildings I did enjoy seeing them.
