Last week on Instagramarama we looked at the world’s tallest towers. This week, we’re keeping with the architecture theme and setting our sights on some of the world’s curviest buildings.
What is it about curvy designs that attract our brains? Well, according to a University of Toronto study headed by neuroscientist Oshin Vartanian, curvilinear contours activate the anterior cingulate cortex of our brain. That’s the region that’s responsive to the reward properties and emotional salience of objects.
Why not test out that theory and check out the sweeping curves and sinuous contours of these 10 curvy buildings we found on Instagram.
