Mind-bending Optical Illusion Suspends This Historical Building In Mid-Air

On his latest project, Alex Chinneck, a British artist, has created what looks like a floating building. The project is titled “Take My Lightning But Don’t Steal My Thunder”.  A section of the convent Garden Market Building (which is 184 year old) looks like it’s been cut horizontally and is levitating at more than 10 feet over its detached half.

The stunning optical illusion appears to make the building hover in mid air. A section of the building looks like it has broken free from the foundation and is floating high above those who visit the site. The architecture, a complicated technical wizardry piece, took 3 months to create. Alex used heavy counterweight that was strong enough to support the top section of the building.
