Strange Architecture – Atomium, Brussels Belgium

7-33-Worlds-Top-Strangest-Buildings-atomium

The Atomium building was created for the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair. The overall design replicated a single unit cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. Lifts and escalators give access to the five bubbled areas where there is exhibits and public spaces for enjoyment. The top sphere provides a great panoramic view of Brussels.

The story of the Atomium is, above all, one of love, the love that the Belgians have for an extraordinary structure symbolising a frame of mind that wittily combines aesthetic daring with technical mastery. The appearance of the Atomium is unusual and unforgettable. It has a rare quality of lifting everyone’s spirits and firing their imagination.

Diane Hennebert, 2008.

The unusual icon in the capital of Europe was restored in 2006 and continues to amaze us today.

The design replicates the wanted Utopian “perfect” societies of yesterday with the futuristic UFO like society of today.
