Before, when one speaks of architecture, one would refer to churches and other grand, historic structures. Today however, cities boast of a new kind of architectural wonder: hotels. And what better site than one that you can admire externally, and sleep in once you get tired?

Bella Sky in Copenhagen, Denmark


 
This hotel actually has two buildings that are inclined in different angles; they seem to be facing each other slightly. Yet this innovative play using angles is not just seen on the outside, but in the inside as well; there are more than 200 different shapes of rooms inside this hotel. The place where these hotels stand is near the airport, so the height of these structures could not exceed more than 246 feet. This then inspired the leaning design of the hotels. Rooms start at $155 a night.
