If there is one condition of modern architecture, it’s that the construction must prevail standing. Yet some architects push the limits, obviously challenging with Newton’s universal law of gravity, to design structures that not only seem to defy reasoning but are excellent at that. From a cantilevered shed created by the Dutch-based firm MVRD to an impressively accumulated construction in Hanover, by the Stuttgart-based firm Behnisch Architekten, these modern architecture buildings seem impracticable to conceive, let alone produce. Of course, all of these architectural constructions passed stringent zoning laws before they were built. Here are some examples of impressively designed structures: Building: Museum of Tomorrow Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Architect: Santiago Calatrava Completed in 2015, 1.4 million people visited the Museum of Tomorrow during its inaugural year, far surpassing the predicted 450,000 visits. It is currently the most-visited museum in Brazil. Building: Hypo Alpe-Adria Bank Location: Udine, Italy Architecture firm: Morphosis Architects The architects tilted…

As one of the most affluent neighbourhoods in the world, Mayfair is located perfectly to the east of Hyde Park in the heart of London’s West End. Providing convenient transport connections, a flourishing real estate market, and the very best retail brands and fine dining available, it is a popular residential location for wealthy people around the globe. The district can be traced back to 1675 when it was nothing but a muddy open space, made so by the River Tyburn. It wasn’t until 1686 when King James II allowed the agricultural May Fair to relocate from Haymarket to this land that it found some purpose and was aptly named. The fair took place during the first two weeks of May each year, and due to the increasing number of attendants, Haymarket became too small an area to accommodate everyone. However, the residents of Mayfair grew unhappy with the rowdiness,…
