Resembling a space aircraft, this concept school designed by Bernard Tschumi Architects is an amazing piece of architecture.

As the winner of a design contest at Institut Le Rosey, this building was designed for their new center of performing arts. With a sleek and reflective stainless-steel exterior, its dome-like shape accommodates for numerous lecture halls and conference rooms while maintaining a contemporary outlook.

Implications - While the human race has encountered outer space, not all individuals have been able to experience the unknown. Products or services that are able to transport consumers to places with which they are unfamiliar will appeal to those seeking something different and exciting. Companies are constantly reproducing the others' ideas, and the company that can deliver something new, exciting and not yet encountered by consumers will be at an advantage.
