From Undulating Offices to Curvaceous Skyscrapers

Most of the architecture you'll see around the world is flat and has lots of right angles; the sinuous architecture you'll see below is anything but flat.

From undulating office buildings to curvaceous skyscrapers, this sinuous architecture is a wonder to behold.

Implications - Architects are increasingly embracing avant-garde cues in skyscrapers and commercial architecture designs. Central to this theme are curved and sinuous lines, which defy the rectangular skyscrapers of decades past. Businesses can take advantage of this opportunity by designing industrial and commercial architecture that eschews 90-degree angles and boxy constructions in favor of round, flowing designs that emulate eggs, water droplets and other form factors found in nature.
