Some really quirky designs here.

This was very interesting and very well-written with some really beautiful pictures. My only suggestion is that you refrain from putting you lede, your opening paragraph, entirely in bold typeface. It is not recommended and it makes your articles and you appear less professional.

Your article is strikingly wonderful to read and view with your selection of pictures. Thank you !

Quite interesting and well written. I lived in Tulsa for many years. The Oral Roberts structure seems like a waste of the money hard working people donated to help others in needs. I enjoyed your choices.

Excellent work . . . . Voted up

Quit interesting and excellent peace of information . . . voted up

Unfortunately, a fire destroyed the Kasubi Hill Tombs on March 16, 2010. http://factoidz.com/history-of-the-kasubi-hill-tombs-of-the-buganda-people/

The Prayer Tower should disgust people, not because of it's appearance, but because of what it stands for. Vanity, greed, shows of excess are suppose to be sins and frowned, on, yet this church threw away money on such a structure instead of using the money to help people - shameful.

Ranked #10 in Architecture

Really interesting and nice to behold structures, kabayan.
