This is a real building; you're looking at an actual hotel in Munich, made much, much more interesting by Víctor Enrich. The site is the latest addition to the photographer's portfolio of mind-bending architectural distortions; here, he's transformed the same building 88 times, each more WTF than the last.
The most amazing thing is that they all look... believable. They obviously aren't feasible as brick-and-mortar constructions, but somehow he manages to make it seem like they could be.
Enrich imagines sides we'd never have the chance to see -- like, say, the bottom -- gives glimpses of angles that would never be built, crafts impossible bends and unbelievable splits.
All that, plus gravity defying floating orbs? C'mon! These are great, and would make for a fantastic backdrop for a movie set in a trippy alternate universe. What if the buildings that lined the streets you walk down every day could morph on a moment's notice?
We've picked a handful of our faves here, but check out the clip below for the whole collection set to the simple sound of one piano key per pic -- straightforward and actually pretty dramatic, and a perfect 88 each. [Víctor Enrich via Colossal]
