    Wow, is that weird. I`d like to see what the interior of those rooms look like at the "nose" of the building.

    It`s like the Eastern European version of the Flat Iron building in NY.

    They probably manage to charge more for the end units because they`re "unique".

    @ Rodin: I dunno... "Optical Illusion Building" works for me. From Webster`s: "Optical illusion: Something that looks different from what it is." And from the 45 degree profile, this building looks like it`s just a facade that`s 12" deep.

    Go, Peppyprep!

    @squrlz:

    It`s just a photo of a flat iron building taken at a certain angle. Being able to see the rooms through the closest windows gives it away.

    It`s a cool photo -- I just wouldn`t call it an optical illusion.

    @ Rodin: Hmmm. Well, then perhaps: "Optical Illusion Building for the Not-So-Clever Among Us"? *chortle*

    @ Peppy: It`s okay--I was like you in your description: "Whaaaa... howww... ohhhh." At first I was thinking it was a movie set or a firefighter training prop. Good post!
