Modern Architecture – Infinite Perspectives (9 photos)

It's the vast amount of different perspectives this building offers that really intrigues me. It's almost like there is an infinite amount of different ways to view the structure.

Portuguese architecture firm Barbosa e Guimaraes Arquitectos aimed to create a sense of movement and irregularity for Vodafone's new headquarters in Porto, Portugal. The cross-section reveals an uneven footprint, almost as if the entire structure had fallen from the sky and crashed itself into Earth.

Called the Oporto Vodafone Building, the project has a faceted concrete shell with angular windows. The building has eight floors, three of which are underground.
