Åndalsnes is a small Norwegian city that serves as a gateway to the region’s magnificent fjords — but it’s in need of a makeover. Jagnefält Milton Architecture has proposed a unique way to enliven the city: a hotel that rolls on the many train tracks that connect the town to the outside world. Spotted on designboom, the award-winning concept is a kinetic structure that can take visitors into the heart of the fjords in an environmentally-sensitive fashion. The architects even envision a master plan for an entire town that can move on tracks, spread out during the summer, and huddle close in the winter.

The Buzludzha Monument was constructed in 1981 to commemorate the founding of the Bulgarian Socialist movement nearly a century before, but it now stands as a symbol of its failure.

Knapp’s, Lansing, Michigan
from Roadside Architecture

Another photo of the Knapp building. Again, anyone have an update? Still abandoned? Demolished?

From Roadside:

The streamline moderne Knapp Building was built in 1937 as the J.W. Knapp Department Store (Lansing’s largest). The store closed in the 1970s. At some point, it became Knapp’s Office Centre. However, since around 2002, the building has been vacant and the City continues debating what to do with it. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3.
