World’s Best Modern Marvels

You don’t have to wait for time to tick by to take a trip into the future. Some of the world’s modern marvels are already paving the way for mankind’s sleek new chapter. If you want to feel like you’ve just stepped out of a time machine, get onto a plane and visit some of these stunning man-made wonders.

L’Hemisfèric planetarium, Spain

There’s more than meets the eye at the City of Arts and Sciences compound in Spain. Here, the giant glass L’Hemisfèric planetarium dome is one of the main attractions. According to CNN, the structure was built to look like a human eye. While you may only get half the picture by focusing on the physical structure, the illusion of a full eye is created in the reflection of the water that surrounds the complex.

The Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Shanghai

There are dozens of eye-popping sights in Shanghai that paint the city to be one of the most modern areas in the world. At the forefront of these futuristic attractions stands the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. This massive radio tower reaches into the clouds far above the other skyscrapers in the city, according to Travel China Guide. Fittingly enough, the inside of the lower of two spheres attached to the spire holds a futuristic science fantasy city.

Cayan Tower, Dubai

The Burj Khalifia – otherwise known as the world’s tallest building – may be the most popular structure in the Dubai skyline, but there’s another skyscraper known for its modern design and jaw-dropping appearance. The Cayan Tower is an 80-story residential building that defies the laws of contemporary construction, according to CNN. Shaped like a helix, the sides of the tower corkscrew 90 degrees as if someone has grabbed its top and twisted. At this scale, you may never have seen a building quite like this.

Absolute Towers, Mississauga

These two towers, with their mind-boggling curves and reflective surfaces, will play tricks on your eyes, according to The Weather Channel. Constructed by Chinese architecture company MAD, the buildings were designed to look as if they’re in a state of constant waving motion. These skyscrapers didn’t conform to the modern style. Instead of consisting of broad lines and flat surfaces, they bulge, wave and twist while soaring into the clouds. Locals have dubbed them the Marilyn Monroe towers for their curvy form.
