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.

The Guggenheim Museum


The Bejing National Aquatics Center (The Water Cube)


Bejing National Stadium (The Bird’s Nest)


The Nestle Chocolate Museum


Orestad Gymnasium


The Burj Dubai


It’s always awesome when art is in such a visible place.
