Buildings stories

 
This is the new Cinépolis Headquarters above the city of Morelia, Mexico, one of the largest cantilevered buildings around. Not only does it feature big chunks of the office space hanging out into thin air, it's also got all sorts of green features.
 
This is the Great Hall at the New York Hall of Science. Built in 1964 as part of the World's Fair, it has transformed over the years from a small pavilion into a major science and technology center. This museum boasts the "largest collection of hands-on science exhibits" in NYC, which means hundreds of interactive goodies for you to enjoy.
 
There's an old stretch of road in Italy that's going to fall out of use in favor of a new highway, and the country turned to designers for ideas on how to recycle the road rather than just leave it derelict. One idea? Build a city of hanging houses under its bridges.
 
See that ghostly honeycomb tower in the middle there? The one with the fancy lights? That's the PSi Tower by Michael Young, an ultra-modern skyscraper designed for Hong Kong. Its hexagon-studded shape isn't just for show, either. The various faces actually move to maximize the amount of natural light inside the structure.
 
In October of 2006, artist Erwin Wurm slammed an upside-down house right on top of Vienna's Museum Moderner Kunst (MUMOK). While Wurm's installation, appropriately dubbed "House Attack," was only temporary, his project transformed the stark MUMOK façade itself into a work of art.
