Believe it or not! But the truth is that the Longaberger Basket Company’s corporate headquarters really is a basket. The folks at the company take so much pride in their handcrafted maple-wood baskets that they built a seven-story building looking like a basket.
This is the largest basket in the world and it is 160 times larger than the real Longaberger Medium Market Basket. This massive monument is a steel structure plastered over with stucco. Inside this huge basket stands the seven-story corporate headquarters of the Longaberger Basket Company.
The Longaberger Basket Building is huge and one can be completely amazed at the culture around this set of visions of a basket-filled world in Newark, Ohio. It is a truly impressive example of mimetic architecture.
It is the brainchild of the founder of the company Dave Longaberger.
