Want to spend a night in a basket?

In 1997, the former Longaberger Basket Company built its headquarters in Newark, Ohio. Of course the seven-story office building was shaped like a giant basket, complete with handles. Now the "Big Basket" is being remodeled into a luxury hotel which will open its lid to guests next year.

The stately example of Palladian refinement is hailed by roadside America as "the world's largest basket," which make one wonder about the competition. How many building-size baskets are there in the world?
