39 Avant-Garde Angletecture Designs

From Boomerang Buildings to Sloped Sustainable Homes

— October 17, 2009 — Eco
This slideshow of angletecture designs proves that when it comes to construction, neat 90 degree corners don't always cut it. From boomerang-shaped buildings to edifices like the one on the right, there's no shortage of gravity-defying angletecture in the world, and we've done our best to curate a collection of the best and brightest designs.

Check out these and more avant-garde angletecture designs below.

Implications - The Internet has dramatically increased the profile of avant-garde architecture. As a result, companies and brands seeking extra publicity or increased brand awareness could benefit from an experimental office redesign or display created by a noted or respected architect. This architecture can benefit companies or brands long-term by becoming a reference point or topic of discussion in the art and design discourse.
