Architecture has never failed to shock and awe from the beginning of time, but when architects get it right they can really create miracles, legends, pieces of art and here are some of these modern marvels.
1. Phoenix Observation Tower:
Copenhagen and New York-based architecture studio Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has designed a 420 ft. tall mixed-use observation tower to serve as a symbol for the city of Phoenix, Arizona. Located in downtown Phoenix, this intimidating spectacle will add a significant structure to the Phoenix skyline from which to enjoy the city's spectacular views of the surrounding mountain ranges and dramatic sunsets. Phoenix-based developer Novawest contracted the team to create a destination charm to provide both tourists and citizens of Phoenix the chance to enjoy the unique features of the Valley of the Sun.
