Την ονομάζουμε «μπόγια» των οικοδομών και πρόκειται να αναρτούμε φωτογραφίες από όλα τα απίστευτα και κακόγουστα κτίρια που υπάρχουν γύρω μας. Χρησιμοποιούμε τη λέξη “μπόγια”, είναι εκείνος που μαζεύει τα συνήθως άσχημα αλλά γλυκύτατα κατά τα άλλα, αδέσποτα ζωάκια που κυκλοφορούν ελεύθερα στους δρόμους. Έτσι, υπάρχουν και αρκετά κτίρια. Σαν αδέσποτα, δεν έχουν πατέρα και μητέρα, έχουν προέρθει από τυχαία ανάμειξη, μηχανικών, ιδιοκτητών και άλλων
