    An unusual complex of house-cubes appeared in Rotterdam and Helmond in 1984. From above, the project of the architect Piet Blom resembles a huge Penrose diagram - an optical illusion in geometry. The walls and windows in the apartments are tilted at an angle of 54.7 degrees to the ground.

    Architects design beautiful and unusual things, leaving masterpieces for future generations that will be stunned by the skill and imagination of the outstanding creators.

    The most unusual architectural projects are scattered around the world, amazing tourists and visitors.
