Top 9 unique structures
Top 9 Unique Building Structures In The World Being Built Now.
Top 9 unique structures should *be built soonObviously, construction technologies are advancing extremely quickly. couple that with multi-billionaires / deep-pocketed companies trying to outdo each other in the quest for the next standout design and you have a near-future filled with mile-high skyscrapers and buildings that no longer look like buildings. Below are 9 strange and unique structures which have either been approved or are in the final stages of approval. some have already been partially constructed. Welcome to the future landscape.
1. AQUA, USA
From a distance this skyscraper, to be completed in 2009 in Chicago , will seem quite traditional. It'll only be when you get close and look up that you can appreciate the ripple/jelly effect created by variously sized balconies from top to bottom.
2. CHICAGO SPIRE, USA
The phenomenal Chicago spire, when completed in 2010, will be the world's tallest residential building and the tallest building of any kind in the western world. Seemingly modeled on the image of a giant drill poking through the ground, the 609m structure will dominate the Chicago’s skyline.
3. CCTV Headquarters, CHINA
At a modest 234m the CCTV building isn't going to stand out from a distance, however the design and shape is a crowd stopper to say the least and will be another incredible addition to Beijing 's skyline in time for the 2008 Olympics. The shape, described as a 'z criss-cross' results in a very high, seemingly unsupported corner at the front. let's hope there's a glass floor up there.
