Incredible architectural structures of our time.
There are some houses that the whole world knows about. Architectural masterpieces that have become the greatest demonstration of the boundless human imagination. Here are the Gaudi buildings, the leaning tower of Pisa, and the dancing house in Prague. All these buildings have long been the hallmarks of the cities in which they are located. But few people think that architects from all over the world continue to bring their incredible ideas to life. We have collected only 10 of the most striking creations, which became known thanks to social networks.
Modern architecture, as well as the houses of a century ago, deserves special attention, because with the development of technology, human capabilities have greatly expanded and it has become much easier to recreate in reality a masterpiece that appeared in the imagination of an artist or architect. Of course, the buildings that we would like to tell you about are much larger, but we have chosen only the most important ones.
If you look at the “crooked” house located in Poland, then at some point you will feel that it seems to float. It seems that this house is simply tired of the scorching sun and slowly melts, sliding on the asphalt. The building belongs to a shopping center and is the most popular building in the small town of Sopot.
And this unusual structure is located not in Europe, but in Moscow . This is the banquet hall “Orion Hall”. The original building, devoid of contrast in the background, is considered one of the most elite places in the country, where many seek to hold significant events. And tourists are pleased just to look at the original facade of a seemingly openwork building.
Austria has always been a very traditional country, famous for its neat houses, reminiscent of a sketch for a fairy-tale story. But in 2003, in the city of Graz, a very impressive building grew up, resembling a huge alien. In fact, it is just a museum of modern art.
Ribbon Chapel is a chapel. The building is located on the territory of the city of Onomichi in Japan. An unusual self-supporting structure was made in the form of a double helix. And its symbolic architecture makes sense and enhances emotions. Oh, yes. This is not just a chapel, but a wedding chapel. The building is surrounded by two ascending staircases, which smoothly connect to form a single architectural ribbon. And as you understand, the groom goes up one, and the bride on the other-beautiful, of course, but a little tedious.
In Rotterdam, which is located in the Netherlands, an entire street is filled with cubic houses. According to the architect’s idea, the buildings should appear inverted and stand at an angle. Of course, a quarter of the space has become simply unusable, but the look of the houses is really memorable.
The Church of Santa Monica is the brightest example of the flight of imagination and extraordinary architecture of the 21st century. The building is located in the town of Rivas Vasiamadrid in Spain. It must be admitted that this structure does not look much like a traditional church. But it looks very impressive and attracts the attention of tourists from all over the world.
The modern architecture of Japan deserves special attention. In this small country, by some miracle, centuries-old traditions and a modern vision of the world get along. This building is located in Tokyo and looks very original.
A very futuristic and impressive concept of a wooden lake house is located in Miami, Florida. This epic structure is called the “Royal Villa” and was designed by Ukrainian architect Dmitry Kuznetsov. A lot of glass, wood and the shape of the building make it look like a ship, more precisely, on its bow. It is worth admitting that it is bold, modern and certainly unique!
This quaint building is nothing more than a museum of modern pop culture. It is located in Seattle, USA. It seems that the silhouette of the building as if someone accidentally smeared in the photo editor, and all its surfaces shine and shine, like the body of an electric guitar in the spotlight at a rock concert. The building was originally conceived as a Jimi Hendrix museum, but soon the project was transformed into an interactive music museum.
And in the end, it is worth telling about an unusual residential building in London. This building seems to be filled with balloons. You may have seen similar houses on social networks more than once. The debate about their reality is still ongoing. Someone claims that these houses actually exist, and someone is sure that this is a very skillful use of computer graphics. Anyway, we could not ignore these masterpieces of human creativity and believe that they are in any case worthy of attention.
