Elk Grove, a community close to Sacramento, California, aims to assert its public pride in the form of a cultural hub. Elk Grove by Zaha Hadid is a large-scale architectural project that will surely put this small city on the map -- and with quite the topographical appendage if I may say so!

From just about any perspective, this community center offers an awesome outlook, and from above it definitely takes on a futuristic marine aesthetic. Dubbed the "Octopus plus a starfish" project, the unique structure has an outlandish and abstract shape that's no slave to the program within.

Set to house a conference center, a performing arts center, a museum, a library, sports fields, additional flexible spaces and even a hotel, Elk Grove by Zaha Hadid takes on a life of its own. Stats for Inverted Octopus Architecture Trending: Older & Warm
