10 iconic places and buildings that look like mouth-watering desserts
Anonim

Some places on our planet are capable of striking the imagination with their mere appearance. Sometimes nature itself creates pictures that resemble magical desserts, but it also happens that architects, inspired by the types of air meringues or cream cakes, create real masterpieces. The purpose of some of the buildings does not seem to match their appearance at all, but they look really mouth-watering.

Public toilet in Japan

This public toilet looks like a real cake. Its architects Minako Nishiyama, Mika Kasahara and Yuma Haruna put a certain meaning in this structure, called the "Melting Dream": Japan is full of external sweetness, and the destruction that has begun does not make people think. The project creators were inspired by the 2011 accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant.

Luitla Duimun, Faroe Islands

Luytla Duimun is the smallest of the Faroese islands, but it is he who is able to attract attention with an incredible view. The fact is that the island itself seems to be a large cupcake, on top of which a huge spoonful of whipped cream was placed. This is due to the lenticular cloud hanging over Luytla-Duimun and enveloping the island just like an airy protein mass or a real cotton candy.

From a distance, this Australian lake resembles a piece of pink chewing gum, but up close, viewers have the illusion that this reservoir is filled to the brim with sweet strawberry syrup. True, the nature of the color of Hillier Island has not yet been studied, and numerous tourists can admire the unusual Auxerre only from a helicopter. The most interesting thing is that Hiller retains its color at any air temperature, and the water collected in the bottle remains the same pink.

At the sight of British "gingerbread" houses with original roofs, it seems that they are all from past centuries or even from some kind of fairy tale. But really such dwellings are a highlight and, one might say, a visiting card of modern Great Britain. In the British provinces, it is still fashionable to cover roofs with thatch, as it was several thousand years ago. It's even surprising how this idea has not yet been picked up by modern Russian summer residents.
