Flatiron Building





I wonder if I am the only one who thinks the inspiration for this building was an iron left upright on an ironing board while cooling.

Is that for real? Are we sure that's not an Onion spoof? How could anyone not think it looks like an iron?

It's for real - under construction in Dubai (which has more than its fair share of unusual buildings). Atkins Architecture is the designer. I can't link directly to the notes on their website, but it is listed under "Projects: Iris Bay."
