It may be a trick of photography or maybe a trick of the eye, but these 15 structures seem to disappear into their surroundings. via flavorwire.

  1. Lovely designs, but I feel sorry for all the birds that must fly into the wooded ones, attempting to fly thru and break their necks. I would think this would happen quite frequently in the environments with reflected trees/skies.

  2. Commenter #1 beat me to the punch. It’s really neat that the building doesn’t stand out in its environment but the bird carnage must be huge. Also, during mating season for various animals, you might have a lot of pecking, scratching, and head butting of your building as various animals try to compete for territory with their reflections.
