Salvador Dalí was anything but conventional, so when visiting The Dalí Museum, it’s no surprise that even the building is avant-garde. The ultra-modern structure features a geodesic glass bubble called the “enigma,” which is made up of triangular glass pieces. Inside there’s a helical staircase that embodies Dalí’s love of spirals. Both are a #archilovers delight.
