Netizens found a completely flat building in Singapore

The topic for a heated discussion on Reddit was the publication of a photograph, which depicts the Singapore office center. The point is that from the first (and from the second) glance one might think that the building is absolutely flat. So what is it - the trick of architects or a failure in the matrix?

The user who posted the photo noticed that from a certain angle the building looks as if drawn in 2D. Commentators were not long in coming and compared the discovery with a computer game, a program with poorly traced graphics, and the film The Matrix.

“My brain just broke down. I can not understand what I see. "

However, one of the forum participants (who apparently knew what was going on) said that if you get closer, the illusion will disappear.

The flat building is a 37-storey complex of The Gateway on Beach Road with a height of 150 meters. It consists of two towers and was built in 1990 by the American company I. M. Pei. By the way, it is the embassy of Mexico.

The buildings, of course, are not flat, they are trapezoidal, but at a certain angle they create an amusing illusion. Having learned about this, users began to discuss "such a stupid architectural solution" - how can you arrange triangular rooms with sharp corners?

"This is a big piece of empty, unfit space."

But there were those who stood up for the unfortunate buildings.

“My father had an office in The Gateway. There is a special corner table that goes deep enough. There is a computer monitor on it. ”

“This form is necessary for giant conference rooms. People are sitting facing the screen, and they don’t have to lean over the tables to see it. ”

The office center did not give rest to users of the forum, and they still found it in Google maps to make sure that this is not a fake. Well, it looks impressive!
