The City of Culture of Galicia, Santiago de Compostela
(1/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Designed by American architect Peter Eisenman, the buildings of The City of Culture of Galicia look like rolling hills. After the budget ballooned from the original forecast, however, the developer halted construction. There is a museum that hosts temporary exhibits, but check online in advance to see if any interest you.
