Weekly Photo Challenge: UNUSUAL

This was a view from the window of a hotel where I stayed last November. I zoomed my camera to find out what this coin-looking figure was. It was actually a building! Unusual shape for a very tall structure, isn’t it?

FOOTNOTE (23 March 2012): Finally, I found the name of this odd-looking structure. It’s an offfice building called HQ. The HQ Building was voted in 2008 as ‘Best Futuristic Design’ by the Building Exchange Conference, and is a striking addition to the Abu Dhabi skyline. The building is the world’s first circular skyscraper.

And I even found a video…

    That building would have me second guessing what it was too. What city is it in, out of curiosity?

      I couldn’t believe my eyes too. Who would thought of creating a very tall building that’s shaped like this? A lot of planning and measuring🙂 Thanks for the visit🙂

    That is indeed a very unusual building! You got a great photo of it from your room, and I wouldn’t have known for sure it was a building either. It looks more like an art sculpture, very eye-catching. I enjoyed the video and learning about it, thanks for posting the information on it!

      I can’t understand that too. I feel some space is wasted with a round architecture, rather than the usual rectangular ones. I guess they just want to impress. Many buildings here in the UAE were built to impress. Thanks for visiting🙂
