The 10 Most Interesting Pyramid Shaped Buildings

Why do people keep building pyramid-shaped buildings? Depending on the structure’s purpose, it could be for efficient use of indoor space, structural strength, or because it looks cool. The last reason may be the most common, because these buildings certainly stand out among others! While most are huge commercial or government buildings, at least one family has a pyramid home.

The 6-story Gold Pyramid House sits on 17,000 sq. ft land in Wadsworth, Illinois, and is described as one of the most interesting homes ever built. Its builders – Linda and Jim Onan – explain it simply as: Impressive, Exotic, Mystery, Gold, and Power. The two are avid believers of the 70’s cult concept of “Pyramid Power” and their home is said to be the biggest gold plated structure(utilizing 24 karat gold) in North America. Surrounded by a large moat on an island, the structure has several impressive features, including a 4-car garage topped by 3 smaller pyramids, a metal palm-tree, and a fifty-foot statue of King Tut.

I understand why the stepped pyramid in Orange County, California did not make the list. It houses the west coast IRS audit offices.
