70 Curvy Architectural Structures

From Wavy Wood Coffee Shops to Curvy Aluminum Schools

— October 11, 2013 — Art & Design
When it comes to designing a building that will stand out, form and structural outline can make a big difference, and these curvy architectural structures are here to showcase that smooth edges and spherical influences can make for a wonderfully eye-catching appearance.

While contemporary buildings are all about minimalist design and compact geometric shapes, these curvy architectural structures are more about creating a smooth, free-flowing shape that instantly catches the eye. By incorporating such unique aspects such as wave-like designs, spiralling patterns and soft, spherical shapes, these buildings are able to portray a very modern and abstract design that will surely have architects stunned and amazed.

From curvaceously pristine restaurants to delightfully warped dwellings, these curvy architectural structures are sure to make an impact with their use of smooth, continuous lines.
