COOL photos--strange curious architecture

I love architecture. When I was a kid I wanted to become an architect. That was before I flunked my way through algebra, etc.

Here are some really cool may not even think they are real. But they are REAL buildings

The Basket Building (Ohio, United States)
The Longaberger Basket Company building in Newark, Ohio might just be a strangest office building in the world. The 180,000-square-foot building, a replica of the company’s famous market basket, cost $30 million and took two years to complete. Many experts tried to persuade Dave Longaberger to alter his plans, but he wanted an exact replica of the real thing

Kansas City Public Library (Missouri, United States)
(this is my favorite!! books!!)

This project, located in the heart of Kansas City, represents one of the pioneer projects behind the revitalization of downtown.

The people of Kansas City were asked to help pick highly influential books that represent Kansas City. Those titles were included as ‘bookbindings’ in the innovative design of the parking garage exterior, to inspire people to utilize the downtown Central Library.

The Mushroom House aka Tree House (Cincinnati, Ohio, USA)
