Dorobanti TowerI love architecture, but I often find myself drawn to ancient structures, as you all know!  However, I also really enjoy some of the newer architects who are creating these fantastic structures that function as sculpture as well as useful buildings.  The architect Zaha Hadid is pushing the modernist trend to the limits, creating an amazing structure that is truly stunning!

Check out this website that presents a new building in Bucharest, Romania that is designed by Zaha Hadid.  This building, called the Dorobanti Tower, is proposed for the center of the city, and would be a sculpture/building that towers over the current architecture that Bucharest now has to offer.  Now, imagine how unique this building will look compared to the other architecture in this very old European capital.  Do you think that this building will be awkward among the older, more traditional city structures?  Or will this original and dynamic new style bring a breathe of fresh air to a city in need of a spark?  Look at the photos and you decide…  Send me a comment, let me know what you think.

The Dorobanti Tower is HERE

Thanks to the CrankyProfessor for drawing my attention to the Dorobanti Tower.
