The thrill of the unexpected is an ephemerality that defines the urban experience. The idea that "real" urbanites are jaded cynics may have a bit of truth; but if we are less likely to be surprised it is because we have come to expect the unexpected. Still, it is the variety of cities that keeps us interested, always wondering what we may find around the next corner. This week's Urbanffffinds each highlight, in their own way, the strange and delightfully unpredictable nature of urban places, be it in the startling geometry of a structure seen from an uncommon vantage point, the juxtaposition of architectural styles, or a good old-fashioned zoo escapee.
