WTF. This is a thousand years ago. And here were we thinking, skyscrapers were something of the 20th century...

apparently, lot's of Italian cities looked like that, in this period.

San Gimignano

Montreal's Olympic Stadium was built for the 1976 Summer Olympics. There were construction delays that meant that the stadium wasn't finished in time for the Olympics. The roof was and tower were completed after the Games.

Beetham tower in Manchester can give the impression that its slanted thanks to its step out, even though its not really, still thought it was interesting enough to warrant a post
