Awesome Buildings at the World Architecture Festival
Architecture geeks, this post is for all of you. You have probably heard of the World Architecture Festival, an event which is held yearly to celebrate the world’s greatest buildings. Some of them are already completed, while others are in the planning stages. One thing is for sure: the entries are breathtaking. Some of them even have this out of this world look.
This year, the World Architecture Festival is going to be held in Barcelona, Spain. There are more than 700 entries coming from 59 countries. Obviously, we can’t feature all of them here, but take a look at some of the most eye catching man-made creations that have made it to the World Architecture Festival.
This building complex is a project planned in the city of Kolkota, India. The idea is to provide a revolutionary type of housing for the residents of the city. Of course, culture is not disregarded, with the housing units being provisioned for multi-generational households. What is truly exceptional about the planned complex is the overall design.
These images may only be concepts for now, but when the buildings are fully constructed, they will truly be breathtaking.
Taipei Nangang Office Tower
The Taipei Nangang Office Tower is also a concept for now, but knowing the propensity of the Taiwanese for groundbreaking edifices, it is very likely that the tower will be built. This shell-like building draws inspiration from river pebbles and the entire design is aimed to provide an efficient yet healthy and inspiring work place.
A House Awaiting Death
The name of the house alone will get the attention of anyone – and it certainly did get mine! At first I was thinking that the house was/is awaiting death, but apparently, the owner of the house believes he will die in 15 years and that he wants to await his death in this house.
In any case, given the unique style of the house and the magnificent view of the sea, I suppose even I wouldn’t mind awaiting death in this house. The house is located in the Mie Prefecture in Japan.
The NLF Bursa is located in the Nilüfer district of Bursa and is a luxury high rise residential project. I have no freakin’ idea how this building can be solid and safe with this design, but what do I know? It does look impressive, though.
Awesome or what? Check out the rest of the nominated buildings at the World Architecture Festival and vote for your favorite.
