Wes Anderson’s movies are known for their distinctive colors and symmetry. So it’s not a huge leap for architecture fans to start associating certain places and buildings with his signature style.

Following “accidental” art pages on the social media site Reddit like “accidental renaissance” and “accidental surrealism,” “accidental Wes Anderson” consists of user submitted photos of architecture that could have come straight for the “Royal Tenenbaums” or “The Life Aquatic.”

Here are some highlights.
