Set fire to a skyscraper

Designer Naihan Li came up with this simple yet surprising design; candles shaped like iconic sky scrapers. You can set fire to some of the world’s tallest structures. The series is aptly called ‘Flammable’ and is joined with a politically correct rationale. Something about an aversion to modern architecture blah-di-blah. Either way, they look awesome and I can imagine it might feel oddly satisfying to light them. It has a nice little Voodoo-touch to it, don’t you think?

Skycraper designers forgot to design elevators

It was designed as a beacon of prosperity – the Intempo Skyscraper in Benidorm. A proud building to show that the popular beach town was not affected by the crunch. In a rush of greed and over-excitedness, the design was changed from an original 20 storey building, to a 47 storey one. Too bad they didn’t redesign the elevator shafts and room for technical equipment, as the space needed for elevators serving 47 floors is now simply not available. The building however, as the images shows, is near completion.
