10 Most Dangerous Roads In The World:
The Most Dangerous Selfies Ever Taken:
We love to design and build things. Take a look around any town or city and you’ll see a wide range of buildings and structures, each with its own unique characteristics and each meant to fill a role in our lives. Sure there are the usual houses and apartments that you can find almost anywhere, but chances are there are at least a couple very distinct buildings that stand out from the rest. Perhaps it’s that extravagant mansion down the road, the new recreation center built downtown or the futuristic looking school that your kids go to. For good or bad, these buildings stand out because they often represent the cutting edge of design and construction.
Despite what that bland and newly constructed subdivision across the way might suggest to you, humans are always pushing the limits when it comes to designing and building things. On an everyday basis, think of the all-glass skyscrapers which have popped up so dominantly among the skylines of the world’s cities. These took over from massive concrete high-rises which, themselves, replaced stone and brick office buildings. Even the traditional apartment building is transformed from a conventionally shaped rectangle to a structure which can feature numerous twists and bends. Changes in design and building materials can not only be meant to add a modern look to a city but also replace the bland and colorless features we often associate with traditional style high-rises.
On a bigger scale, we have designed and built some truly impressive buildings over the last several decades. From the 2717 foot Burj Khalifa in Dubai to One World Trade Center in New York to the CN tower in Toronto, the list of impressive buildings is quite long. In fact, across the globe we have constructed dozens of buildings which are nearly 1000 feet or more in height. Fuelled by technology and the competition between designers and nations, these buildings are notable because of their sheer size. Given the rate of constructing these giant buildings over the last 15 years alone, the trend of building bigger and higher doesn’t look like it’s anywhere near ending.
While there are many massive and tall buildings which have captured our imaginations over the years, this video doesn’t look at them. Instead, this video looks at some of the strangest buildings ever created around the world. These structures represent some of the extremes of construction and engineering. Perhaps more importantly, they represents the extremes of artists and architectural design. From family dwellings to centers of business, from libraries to the just plain inexplicable, ahead you’ll find a wide range of strange designs. Some will definitely leave you amazed while others will likely leave you wondering why on earth someone would build something so strange. In any event, after seeing some of these creations, you might just appreciate living across the way from that bland, newly built subdivision which lacks any sort of character. After all, as you’ll see in a couple instances we look at ahead, it could be a lot worse.
