In the American town of Newarc you can see the original building, whose outline and shape reminds one of the giant basket. Behind the 'wainscots' of this strange building is the large office center, which belongs to the Longaberger society. The author of the idea of this unusual building is the owner of the above mentioned company, Dave Longaberger. The construction workers and the architects needed two years to realize the project. The construction of the new bureaux has cost about 30 million dollars. Today, the impressive building, whose surface is 18,000 square feet, is home to the comfortable and modern offices with first-class equipment.
The building form was not chosen by chance. Longaberger company has been producing the baskets for picnics that are so popular in America for several years. The seven-storey building was officially recognized as the largest basket on earth and is 160 times larger than the typical picnic basket. The building, built in 1997, weighing 9,000 tonnes, became one of Newark's main attractions.
The interior of the office center is just as original as its exterior design. The interior of the building is decorated with metal and glass structures. The building is covered by the dome-shaped glass roof. The giant handles, which have not only a decorative purpose, are crowned by the basket building. In cold weather, they are warmed up and protect the glass roof from icing. It must be noted that the strange office is open for ordinary tourists. Every day, the exciting excursions are conducted through the building, during which you can learn a lot of interesting things about all its peculiarities. Next - Crazy House
