Habog nuclear waste facility, netherlands:

Apparently they paint it a lighter shade of orange every 20 years as the radioactivity of the material stored there decreases.

T mobile HQ in vienna

The twisted building in Prague was covered in the architecture book 'how buildings learn'
It is impossible to clean the windows. They tried using mountain climbers but it's too dangerous - the architect's response was something like 'it's a work of art - which should I be concerned with mere details like cleaning windows' !
