Buildings have always been a representation of power and grandeur, and some architects have taken that concept to an extreme level by designing structures that look like they belong to a super villain. These evil-looking buildings feature menacing angles, ominous colors, and designs that seem to defy gravity. As an up-and-coming super villain, it’s important to have an iconic lair that serves as a symbol of your power to your peers and victims. Your lair could be an underground base, a castle, a mountain top facility, or a dark tower. Don’t even think about wreaking havoc without the proper grounds. To be a step ahead of your villainous competitors, make sure to follow this list of evil buildings.
The Blood Bank
As the saying goes, “money is the root of all evil.” On Reddit, the caption of this photo was calling it “The Blood Bank”, because the building is red. Its bottom is even pointed like a needle. In reality, this is a 3D rendering for the future Central Bank of Iraq, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. They began construction in 2018, and planned to complete it by 2023. The Covid-19 pandemic disrupted construction, which partially accounts for the prolonged completion time. However, all good things take time. Bad things too, apparently. There are plenty of conspiracy theories out there saying that the banking system is evil and corrupt. So this Blood Bank actually matches the vibe of its villain reputation, anyway.
