Deviantly describe the structure without depending on the names of the objects to convey what they look like. Dig into what objects look and feel like rather than naming what they are. (Though these pictures already look otherworldly which makes it much easier!) It looks like a castle or fort. It's not. It doesn't look like what it actually is. Be deviant when describing its purpose, too. :-)

Capture the senses' experience. What does it feel like? What does it smell like? Taste like? Sound like?

Go further and find a mood or personality of the place and let those inspire the descriptive words you choose.

Try unexpected adjectives and vivid verbs. For example, svelt, sleek, oozing, crouching aren't words normally associated with places, but can create fresh images.
