The NLF Tower was designed by GAD Architecture for the town of Bursa, Turkey, and is a stunning example of modern architecture.

The first three floors of the NLF Tower are reserved for shops and stores, while the next five are rented as office space. The remaining 24 floors are condos with lush greenery hanging off every other balcony. As you can see from the pictures, the NLF Tower has a unique shape that changes depending on the angle you view it from. The shape of this tower was based upon a rotating ellipse and is what gives this structure its eye-catching curves. In addition to the tower's unique shape, the designers are also planning to build a railway station underneath so that commuters can marvel at all its glory.
