Man is rarely satisfied to live only within the ordinary and conventional. Architects respond to these impulses by letting their imaginations run wild. They have created truly amazing and, frankly, "weird" buildings- homes which are upside down; UFO-shaped homes; tilted homes; homes in trees; gangster houses; narrow houses; just strange and odd, crooked, forest spirals; or homes shaped like kettles, paper bags, baskets, teapots, and glacial stones. Some buildings seem to dance while others seem rigid, some are fit for the lady who lived in a shoe and others could house a village. And if time permits, we can consider amazing staircases you might add to your home.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
