The outrageous design for the upcoming Waterflux Art Museum and Alpine Ice Research Station looks downright otherworldly. French architects R&Sie(n) sought to reconcile organic forms and materials with reality-bending design from a plastic dimension.

The Waterflux Art Museum is set to be completed in 2009, and is located in Évolène, Switzerland.

Designers are focusing on elements and shapes that will truly capture attention, and alien-themed aesthetics are one of them. A growing fascination with space and a need for avant-garde architecture is giving rise to an area of design that combines the best of both.
