Architect James H. Johnson was inspired by the shape of the local wildflower, Queen Anne's Lace, when he designed this unusual home in Powder Mills Park, near Rochester, New York. The home is actually a complex of several pods with connecting walkways. Perched atop thin stems, the pods are amusing yet eerie examples of organic architecture.
