Burj Al Arab—Most have heard of the bending curves of this ultra-lavish hotel on the Arabian Gulf, but it’s only fair to mention it here again as it is one of the most eccentric forms of hotel architecture to date. The Burj Al Arab is 321 meters of luxury and exclusive service. British architect Tom Wright conceived the billowing hotel in 1993. Photo by: jonrawlinson
