Cairns Botanic Gardens Visitors Centre by Charles Wright Architects.
Sometimes architecture seems like one magic trick after another, but we assure you, these aren’t illusions; these are real structures cladded in mirrors! We found buildings that disappear among nature: from secret getaways and discreet built environments, to picturesque, classic homes bedazzled with a modern flare. You can stand under a pavilion that seemingly hangs your evil twin upside down and above, or check yourself out in the facades made of larger-than-life looking glass, feeding your inner Narcissus. (Haven’t you heard? Architects apparently have big egos.) Whatever your motives, you can reflect on this roundup of intriguing architecture with mirrored facades!
