16 Must-See Architectural Wonders Of The Modern World
If you're looking for unity, then this temple shaped like a lotus flower brings all religions together.
It's home to the Baha'i Faith but is so beautiful and welcoming that anyone of any religion is welcome in here. Just follow one of the 9 doors to the temple's central hall and you can commune in harmony.
Spain's City of Arts and Sciences is so hemispheric, wouldn't you say?
The architectural complex is considered one of 12 must-see hotspots in all of Spain. Located in Valencia, this entertainment center looks more like a spaceship that's just landed on the water and it's breathtaking.
Take a closer look at the Hemispheric museum that's fun for the entire family.
Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the building virtually hovers over the River Turia. And while the 7 marine environments and various specimens inside the structure is just some of what you can see inside, a selfie outside this building is certainly worth a million bucks.
If you're looking for fluidity, then stop by the Heydar Aliyev Center in Azerbaijan.
The structure's wavy structure contains several offices and exhibition halls. But the exterior is what has many people in awe thanks to architect Zaha Hadid who has a thing for unusual shapes and forms and designed this building in the city of Baku with the same philosophy.
The Heydar Aliyev Center is just as impressive on the inside as it is on the outside.
Its auditorium is unlike anything you've ever seen. In much the same way as the gallery hall and museum, this conference hall folds and flows with entrances and continuous surfaces that is simply cutting-edge and marvelous.
