The Lyons Warrnambool Campus Building is a Real-Life Optical Illusion

I remember daydreaming about the day I'd get to school and discover that the building had blown up, been demolished or just fallen over. The Lyons Warrnambool Campus Building was constructed to look like it is falling forward. What a tease.

Architectural firm Lyons used a glazed horizontally-angled facade that tilts towards the ground, creating a real-life optical illusion.

Implications - Rest assured, if you too are feeling a little bit depressed that your university or college campus isn't as cool as this leaning school tower you are certainly not alone. I only wish my campus looked like the spectacular Lyons Warrnambool Campus Building! See more of the amazing Lyons Warrnambool Campus Building in the gallery.
