This cool collection of 10 buildings throughout history who could not be built, either for reasons of funding, politics, or what. What is important, its design been made and the project is planned ... and if this bangunan2 be established, this world will face far different from what we know now ... some buildings are even more cool and more amazing than the buildings in Dubai.

10. Hotel Attraction
Designed in 1908 for New York City
Hotel Attraction wants to be the tallest building in New York at the time. Designed by Antoni Gaudi, it height is 360 meters, and it seemed very impossible at that time. Few facts are known about this project until the year 1956, a book entitled "The New World Called Gaudi" was published. It is not clear why the project was discontinued.
9. The Illinois
Designed in 1956 for Chicago, Illinois
The Illinois was going to be as high as the skyscrapers of 1609 meters visioned by Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright believes that this building may be made, at that time. Its design consists of 528 levels, with a gross area of 18.46 square feet.
The problem that arises is the space needed to build the skyscraper that is less, and limited lift (elevator) is required. That's what ultimately derail this project.
8. Fourth Grace / The Cloud
Designed in 2002 for Liverpool England
Although many people think that the Fourth Grace is the worst proposal, architect Will Alsop won the award for project design which he called "The Cloud" is. The project was terminated due to a booming funds to build a costly spiral design.
Fourth Grace designed for offices, 107 hotel rooms, 50,000 sq ft and facilities including bar, restaurant, and gallery.
7. Beacon of Progress
Designed around 1891 for Chicago, Illinois
The plan is a tower 457 feet high rock in Jackson Park, Chicago. Award-winning design was put forward by MIT Professor Désiré Despradelle, a Frenchman. With more financial support, this building could be the highest man-made building in the world at that time.
6. Ville Contemporaine
Designed in 1922 for Paris France
The Ville Contemporaine meant to be a place to stay for 3 million inhabitants. Ville was advanced by the Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier. The center of this building is planned for a group of 60 skyscrapers are built with the steel and covered by glass walls. Used for offices and apartments.
It is not clear why the project was stopped ...
5. Tatlin's Tower
Designed around 1917 for St. Petersburg Russia
Tatlin's Tower if so constructed, will create a mini Eiffel Tower impressed. The plan, this building is made of steel, glass, and steel. This tower was going to be a symbol of modernity. The main forms of this tower is a twin helix is a spiral that rises up to 400m high, which can be transported orang2 upward, through the line.
4. Shimizu Mega-City Pyramid
Designed in 2004 for Tokyo, Japan
The Shimizu Mega-City Pyramid is a giant man-made pyramid in Tokyo Bay, Japan. The structure was 12 times higher than the Pyramids of Giza, and can accommodate 750,000 people. That would be the greatest human buildings throughout history. This pyramid was built with 55 smaller pyramids and stacked on each other. Any part is small pyramid is proportional to the amount of the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas.
The reason this project can not be built is because the mega-pyramid design will depend on sophisticated material light but very strong, which at that time still exist.
3. Volkshalle (The Great Dome)
Designed around 1930 for Berlin, Germany
The Volkshalle (People's Hall) is a monumental building that was planned by Adolf Hitler and the architect Albert Speer.

1. Ultima Tower
Designed in 1991 for San Francisco, California
This design really does not seem possible (just clay project illustration above), but otherwise, very cool if it could be made. Architect Eugene Tsui got the idea of this building from the study in San Francisco. This structure will use the energy of the atmospheric energy conversion by changing the energy generated from the air pressure difference above and below this building into electrical energy. This building has 500 floors (2 miles high) and is expected to be home to about 1 million inhabitants.
