Different from the norms of building design, innovative new buildings with sharp angles are more like works of art.
Deviating away from the traditional geometric components, these designs embrace bolder angles, moving architecture forward into new realms that those in the field will find most worthy of praise. Unusual and captivating, these kinds of sleek, ultra-modern buildings include variations that are crisply cutting-edge and brightly free-formed, demonstrate by their magnificence that the more daring and risk-taking the use of geometry, the more visually appealing it will be.
Moving as far from the mundane, practical, and pragmatic, these edifices composed of acute angles create a reaction in anyone who sees them.
