Office for Metropolitan Architecture’s Ole Scheeren, is known for designing elaborate and intriguing architectural structures. Among them is the MahaNakhon complex, a concept designed for Bangkok, Thailand. The 77-floor tall building includes interlaced apartments that go inwards to create the illusion that the building is peeling away its outter layer pixel by pixel.

The structure will take up 3.6 acres in the heart of the busy city. It will include a range of impressive amenities, such as a multi-level three-floor terrace restaurant, and a rooftop outdoor bar with 360 degree views of the skyline and river. The apartment complex will have a mix of two-to-five bedroom homes, all with “expansive panoramic views.” The expected completion date for the MahaNakhon will be in 2014.

Take a look at the photos below to see this impressive pixelated structure.
