This house is a BASKET

The Basket Building (Newark, Ohio)
When Dave Longaberger wanted an office building that looked like his basket company’s best-selling product, his wish was woven into this glorious 1997 result. Longaberger has also built a basket house, but nothing compares to the home of The Longaberger Company. Sadly, the same idea never occurred to the folks at Wonderbra.








EPIC isn't it?

Architect Robert Venturi one said:

"There are two kinds of buildings: Ducks and decorated sheds."

This is clearly of the former category.
