A bizarre alien structure, 180 meters high, is soon to descend on Paris. The Triangle, a shimmering pyramid made out of glass and steel, will have a narrower base than you'd expect and a quirky, wavy elevation.

Herzog and De Meuron have won awards with their sleek, outer-spacey looking buildings, including the Tate Modern in England. Here's a gallery of some of their weirdest designs.
