The design firm Zaha Hadid is known for their modern designs and when they took their design aesthetic to Barcelona and the Edifici Campus, that didn't change.

The design by Zaha Hadid for the Edifici Campus is an offset 11 floor building that looks like stacks of books. The design is great not just because of its modern appeal, but also because the off-kilter design allows for plenty of outdoor space.

Implications - This bizarre and beautiful building will definitely stop walkers in their tracks. Buildings like this one prove that urban infrastructure can, and should be, fully functional as well as aesthetically appealing.
