Unique buildings of the world
Modern houses that are built according to one standard are very similar to each other, which makes them rather dull. But, thanks to the fact that there are still no mandatory rules for the construction of houses, many of the buildings attract attention with their unusual, and sometimes even too unearthly appearance. Let’s look at some of them.
The most unusual office building in the world can rightfully be proud of the American city of Newark, which is located in Ohio. Here is the main center of the company engaged in the production of baskets, therefore, it is not surprising that the house is made in the form of a huge basket.
Director of the company Dave Longaberger insisted on such an unusual decision. The basket house is 180 feet tall and has a height of about twenty-four meters. The construction of the “basket” took two years, which, you see, is not so much for such a grandiose project.
The capital of the Czech Republic, the city of Prague, boasts a no less unique building. This office building has received the name “dancing house” among city dwellers and tourists, due to its unusual appearance. This house was designed by architects Vlad Milunich and Frank Gehry.
In 2007, another building appeared in China that attracts the attention of tourists. It has the shape of a giant piano, near which, as if, some violinist had forgotten his glass violin. Inside the “violin”, visitors get to the stairs, which leads them to the hall, where all kinds of instruments are exhibited.
In the city of Kansas City, USA, you can see the city library, which has the form of a bookshelf.
No less interesting is the so-called “Crooked House”, which is located in Poland. Here you will not find a single line that would be direct, but the building is quite popular among tourists.
