Port of Brisbane Office Building
If you see a building raised on stilts in a waterside area, the first reaction is always to think that this has been done for flood protection. But, in the case of the new Port of Brisbane Office Building in Brisbane, Australia, the explanation is much simpler. Architect Thomson Adsett raised the three storey building by approximately one storey in order to allow occupants to benefit from the view.

Las Arenas de Barcelona
Barcelona’s historic bull ring Las Arenas, constructed at the very end of the 19th century, fell largely into disuse during the 1970s, owing to the declining popularity of bull fighting in Catalonia.

Steel is the obvious choice of materials for industrial buildings, even more so if it is to be housing steel elements. So when steel maker ArcelorMittal was planning a new warehouse building in the port of Aviles in Spain, in front of its works, there was little discussion about the selection of materials.
