Spaghetti Building

It looks as though someone spilt a box of spaghetti onto this building. You’ve even got your veggies thanks to the rooftop garden. Luckily, the building’s frame is actually made out of aluminum, so no amount of boiling water will turn this into mush.

Apparently, the reason for the mesh exterior is to hide office clutter from being seen from the outside. It’s also a nifty way to diffuse natural light without having to tint the windows or use ugly plastic blinds.

The building, named “Manny”, was designed by Tétrarc and can be found behind the courthouse in Nantes, France. It will host conferences, exhibits, and other arty events, and will also provide office space for architecture and creative arts businesses.

Working here, you might start craving Nonna’s Pasta Bolognese.
