Some interesting stuff (great Prodigy song esp.), even if I don't see your intention at all.


Anyway, I renamed this thread from "I'll Take Your Brain to Another Dimension" (sic!) to "Hyper modern buildings collection".

Interesting mix between timeless masterpieces and childish pseudo-architecture.

Well, in general I find some buildings intriguing, but majority is too strange for me

Great compilation, as an architecture student it's great to have lists like this to inspire my work!

But WHY haven't you named each building and wrote the architects who designed it!? It's annoying not being able to find out more about each project...

even though some of those projects are "unbuildable" nowadays, I think they show how we understand the "future", what we want in the next coming years

Each and everyone of these buildings is completely insane! I love them! Where are we going with these, they look like they arre about to shoot off into space, so original it's crazy. I was going to mention Postdamer Platz in Berlin as a super modern place but it's nothing in comparison to these! Amazing...

none are unbuildable - they are all real, legitimate projects.

yes, you're right. I forgot the new technologies that we're facing in places like Dubai, with mobile skyscrapers and so.
my bad.
but we must accept that they can't be built anywhere, only in wealthy places with a huge industry and high techs.
for example, I can imagine one of those in China, but not in Argentina.

Nothing's unbuildable nowadays. We could even take off and build some Mars space research center.

I find most this stuff looks dated already. The white/sliver/gray/glass is so bland. I think the future of buildings will be more natural looking. Not sci-fi wanna be's.

I prefer the Naboo model of a city over that Coruscant one any day.

This square is in Sevilla (Spain), it's the Plaza de España.
