Architectural Masterpieces

The photo above is of the F1 Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. Most people know that the United Arab Emirates is quickly becoming a place of architectural and technological advancements and the Marina Circuit is no exception. Expected to be completed this year, this circuit meshes design and function to create a place that functions as a hotel, a racing track, and art as a whole.

Here’s some other architectural masterpieces that combine form and function in more amazing ways.
