The Longaburger building in Newark, Ohio is probably one of the strangest shaped buildings in this region of the United States. Designed and constructed to resemble the appearance of a picnic basket, this building is one of the most creative architectural creations of its kind. Some may call it weird. Other may think it strange. But for those who carry out their day to day activities within the cozy comfort of this picnic basket shaped building, it is just another day at the office.
It is one of the most interesting things to follow…that is the shape of buildings and how they came to be. I am not talking about existing structures that have impacted by age or a storm and are now a topic of conversation or popular tourist attraction, such as the Leaning Tower of Pisa. What is interesting are the architectural wonders out there that command immediate attention due to their unusual or weird looking shape. Here are some examples and the next time you are out and about and see an interesting building structure, send us over an image so we can post it!
