The Bubble Skyscraper looks like an abnormal growth from the ground or a structure sent down from space. Incredibly interesting, its inspiration is closer to the former, taking cues from its location and drawing inspiration from the soapy shoreline.

Designed by Tehran-based M&A Architects, the Bubble Skyscraper may look frothy from the outside, but it is webby on the inside. This aerodynamic design ensures protection from high winds, while its tree-like base offers resistance from waves and earthquakes.
