Bizarre Buildings Part Four - Feeling Peckish Anyone?
There are many examples of Food shaped Architecture all over the world, it's especially popular in roadside attractions to draw in passing travelers. Here are some of my favourites :-
1. Gibeau Orange Julep, Montreal, Canada
Hermas Gibeau built a 2 storey concrete orange building in 1945 as a family home and for his restaurant where the Gibeau Orange Julep was served. In 1966 the building was moved and then rebuilt out of plastic pool segments and now the whole building can light up!
2. The Big Pineapple - Bathurst, South Africa
8. The Big Apple, Colborne, Ontario, Canada
If you know of any more buildings I should add to this list let me know!
