The Phenomenal GMP Architects Design for the Hanoi Museum

How awesome would it be if pyramids were inverted? GMP Architects was probably asking themselves the same thing when designing the Hanoi Museum in Vietnam.

GMP Architects has designed a unique museum in the form of an inverted pyramid. This building is composed of several floors layed out with a mesh-like exterior. What I love is that the museum is right in front of a large fountain so when you look at it, the reflection reveals a right-side up pyramid which should be entertaining and trippy to some. The interior itself is just as amazing with a large open space and wide winding ramps for people to get from one floor to the next. GMP Architects also uses a white color scheme that shows off the illusion of natural lighting in the building when during night time.
