OCBC Centre, 1976.

Looks like a calculator.It holds a bank which might explain its shape.

This is a proposed residential building in Kyiv, Ukraine.





I hope that everyone realized that it doesn't look like doorknob, but a ship

ugh i dont like it. Theres a huge ship building in Nice, France (apparently Madonna has an apartment in it) but it's a great big ugly eyesore.

Ships look better in the sea.

Love the concrete whale! Fiberglass hotdogs are so yesterday, but building a house in a Brazilian favela the shape of a whale - that's style!

I forgot this one when I started this thread. It's Holiday Inn, the tallest building in Townsville (Australia) and its meant to look like a sugar shaker (which is what its commonly called)




Love the ship by the way. And the cheese grater.

World's largest six pack (calling it a "building" may be a bit of a stretch).
