Situated in Bangkok, Thailand is this flying piece of architecture. Built in 2009, Honda Big Wing was designed by Bangkok-based, VaSLab Architecture.

Megan Jett from ArchDaily:

This new Bangkok vessel has brought in many low-rise commercial projects for recreation and leisure to the neighborhood. The the main sculptural concrete forms were inspired by the motorcycle’s “hugging the curve” transition, which represents the winning moment of racing motorcycles on the racing track. Two boomerang shapes engaged one another in plans and sections. The first one vectors its circulation from main entry through café at ground level, then elevates to showroom, retails, education zone, and descends to warehouse. The other directs its path from mezzanine lounge/conference, then descends via offices and canteen at first level, service center and workshop at ground level.
