Few Structures That Defy The Laws Of Gravity
There’s a reason why most of the buildings in the world are built the way they are, and that’s because of a little thing called GRAVITY. It might seem fun for architects to dream up excessive qualities for the aesthetics of fancy buildings, but they don’t actually get built most of the time because there’s a good chance that they’ll fall down. But sometimes these buildings have exceeded everyone’s expectations and somehow survived their precarious routes.
According to physics, these structures shouldn’t be standing but yet they somehow still are.
While most of the conventional structures are designed with a clearly defined center of mass advancements in engineering, construction materials, and also improvement in building techniques have allowed the architects and engineers to construct a range of structures which are just too good to be true. These structures not only surprise everyone but also, seemingly reject the laws of physics.
Seeing the structures we may feel that these structures might not be as stable as the other conventional structures. But, the fact is they are as study as the other conventional structures.
Below are the Few Structures that Defy Gravity:
The Floating Barn
Based in southeast England this floating barn looks like it could collapse if too many people stood at the wrong end of it. This house was designed by the Dutch firm MV RDV which has won a worldwide reputation for the ingenuity, playfulness, and comfort of their designs. When seen from the entrance it appears to be a normal traditional property but when we get closer we can see that half the property extends out over a dropped portion of land and the only thing is supporting it is a single beam. This is a stupendous piece of architecture. Take a look
Flying Mud Boat
Everything about the flying mud boat in Japan makes it looks like it could fall apart at any moment. When we see that structure, we’d be worried that if we climbed into it, we’d potentially fall through the mud floor. But, believe it or not, this is the structure that defies gravity and exists perfectly even through extreme weather conditions.
This was designed by a Japanese architect Tarun Abou Fujimori – Known for designs with surreal animated movie feels. Simply put, it’s an acorn like mass blown up to a human scale. It is suspended on tension cables over natural wooden posts that have been anchored to the ground. Take a look
Hamburg’s Astra brewery sat at top of the old Astro tower in Germany and it was certainly a top-heavy building. Finished in 1971 the original Astra tower loomed over Hamburg’s red-light district for more than three decades. The modernist structure which housed a brewery, that made Astra beer, resembled the early stages of the Jenga game. This might not be the most aesthetically pleasing building but it definitely attracted attention because of its precariousness. Take a look
