The West Side Pyramid in Manhattan is actually an apartments building.

As an architect I always felt attracted to shapes and modern buildings so it´s my pleasure to introduce you to the fabulous world of the most exclusive and awesome pyramid shape buildings around the world!

Oh! Wait a minute! So you thought Pyramids exist only in Egypt?

Nooo way!! After you read this article you´ll be so impressed about men´s power to create you will definitely want to visit or, why not, live in this huge edifications and feel like a real Pharaoh! So let´s start choosing some of my favorites and…OMG just take a look at this one! By far my favorite!

1. The Great Pyramid of Manhattan (or West side pyramid)- absolutely marvelous

I wonder why you never thought about finding a huge Pyramid in West Side  the middle of the Big Apple? Decades ago that would be nearly impossible, but…NYC always surprises us and makes everything possible!

Located in VIA 57West and a creation of the most talented architects worldwide , Bjarke Ingels, is this fabulous Pyramid Shape building that rises 467ft and is 35 stories tall!. Its artist (cause to me architects are also superb artists) prefer to call this building a Tetrahedron, although everyone knows it as a pyramid and the best of all you don´t need to be a Pharaoh to lay inside this “Pyramid”

TBH yes, average rent here´s still high but come on! Make your best effort and enjoy your stay, as studio apartments are yet affordable!

2.The Louvre Pyramid-to me one of the seven wonders of the world!

This is probably the most popular Pyramid known worldwide. There´s no doubt timeless Geometry is here to stay and that many architects had focused on creating this kind of buildings with pyramid shapes.

The Louvre Pyramid, located in Paris, is not only visited by millions of tourists around the world, but hides a treasure of the most famous paintings of renowned artists of all times. Ok I´m sounding kind of formal here, I´m taking out the architect in me!  Although no one is YET living at this building, maybe you get lucky and rent a room! Of course, only if you are a celebrity 😀

3. The Pyramid house- Get ready to turn heads!

This is undoubtedly one of my favorites! Love watching this picture of a house with pyramid shape! Isn´t it awesome? I find it so original, I´m planning to move to a place like this one! (not that I can afford it, but ok, that´s another problem)

This unique house was build my Mexican architect Juan Carlos Ramos and it’s a comfy three story home with two bedrooms, library, studio, bathroom with pool and all the etc´s possible! Ready to move in?? Okkk don´t forget about me! DAE?

4. Luxur Hotel-“What happens in Vegas…stays in Vegas”

Life doesn´t stop surprising me and that´s so cool! Just look at this pyramid-shape Hotel build. Nothing more and nothing less than in sin city!

This 30-story hotel owned and operated by MGM Resorts International is the best place EVER, to have fun!
Wouldn´t you love to spend at least, just ONE night here? Oh come on! This place is absolutely fabulous!! Invite your friends in and don´t worry babe! What happens in Vegas…stays in Vegas!! Yeah!!

Hope you had fun and at the same time got informed after reading my wonderful articles, ha! Remember I´m an architect and I´m here to serve you so… if you have any questions…AMA!!
