Wes Anderson‘s films have a very recognisible look. Washed out pastels, symmetrical buildings, whimsical furnishings laid out in perfectly considered places.

And so, Reddit has banded together to share pictures of landmarks that look like they’re straight out of a Wes Anderson film. The thread, called ‘Accidental Wes Anderson’, encapsulates everything weird and unique about the director’s style. From bus-stops, to auditoriums, to swimming pools, there’s a bit of colourful retro all around the world that could be mistaken for a film set.

There’s this convent school in Bangkok, Thailand.
