Uummannaq Town, Greenland
This place really could re-write the book on picturesque. I don't know how you build a house that is sympathetic with such surroundings, so I think that the Greenlanders have a much better solution in making their architecture add to the environment by being so obvious. A back-drop of muted earth colours suits the bright buildings perfectly.
