Japanese website Heaven has a round up of buildings from across the globe that either accidentally resemble things—or totally resemble them by design.

Some of the buildings Kotaku has posted before—such as the Namba Parks Building (way back in 2010) and more recently, the toilet house in Suweon, South Korea.

Have a look at the above gallery. Can you tell which buildings were inspired by their real world counterparts and which ones are merely kwinky-dinks?
