Atomium chosen as Europe’s most bizarre building

atomiumGlobal news network CNN has selected the Atomium in Brussels as Europe’s most bizarre building.

The story states “As one of the only remaining symbols of the 1958 Brussels World Fair, this extraordinary structure, conceptualized by late engineer André Waterkeyn, represents an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. It features nine spheres interconnected by 20 tubes. While three spheres contain either permanent or temporary exhibitions from around the world, it’s the highest, at 92 meters (300 feet), that offers a spectacular panoramic view of the city. Capturing visitors’ imaginations with its progressive vision of the future, Atomium receives an average of 600,000 visitors each year.”
