The Basket Building

This building (located in Newark, Ohio, US) by Longaberger Company, specialized on baskets, has a shape of… exactly a basket.

Once you’ve correctly immersed yourself in Longaberger culture by visiting Longaberger Town, Longaberger Homestead (r), shopped at all the Longaberger Stores, and become a Longaberger Representatives pyramiding out to convert more and more middle-aged women into the Longaberger Lifestyle, at some point you MUST make your pilgramage to the Longaberger Headquarters to deposit your Longaberger Party Orders in the big Longaberger Order Drop Basket in the 7 story Longaberger Basket Building ™. 
The Longaberger Basket Building ™ is a truely impressive example of Mimetic Architecture, and relatively recent at that. It was the brainchild of the Longaberger Empire Founder Dave Longaberger, whos biography was a recent hotseller in the inspirational story market. One of his pithy sayings was proudly parroted by our enthusiastic host: “If they can put a man on the moon, they can certainly build a building that’s shaped like a basket.”
