See how the globe's extraordinary structures would look like in Budapest

Amazing futuristic photos were created by National Geographic: they present Budapest dotted with some of the most intriguing structures on Earth.

How would the globe's most extraordinary and precarious builds look like in Budapest? National Geographic decided to find that out and created some impressive images of the Hungarian capital. The photos show Gellért Hill being doubled and standing tall on both sides of the river only to accommodate the 600-meter-long bridge currently under construction over the Msikaba River in South Africa

In another photo, you can see the gigantic Las Vegas event venue, the Sphere, planted behind Budapest Corvinus University, and another photo shows the world's largest airship, the still-under-construction Pathfinder 1, hovering over the Danube. 

National Geographic did not only create these images for fun but to promote its brand-new show 'Building Impossible with Daniel Ashville'. It has just premiered, taking us on a journey across the globe's ultimate engineering challenges.
