The Longaberger Company in Newark, Ohio, United States: the Basket Building
The Building of the Longaberger Company located in the United States might just be one of the strangest office building in the world. It could stay just a dream of Dave Longaberger because many experts tried to persuade him to alter his plans but he wanted an exact replica of the real thing. The founder believed that such an unusual design would draw attention to the company, while simultaneously helping to build the brand. The building was designed by Strange but true. It looks like a huge market basket, cost $30 million and took two years to complete. It covers 25 acres, weighing 8,000-9,000 tons with a square footage of 180,000. The two basket handles were settled to the top of the building with copper and wooden rivets weighing about 150 tons. I’m sure it is really worth to see this tremendous basket.
