The Crooked House

No you’re not hallucinating and this picture has not been photoshopped.

This Crooked House (or Krzywy Domek as it is referred to in Polish) is a real place in Sopot; a town in northern Poland.

Designed by architects Szotyńscy & Zaleski in 2004, this 4,000 square meter hallucinatory structure was inspired by the children’s illustrations of Jan Marcin Szancer and by the artwork of Per Dahlberg.

The house functions as a shopping center, which includes shops, pubs and restaurants. It consists of three stories and was built as though it belongs in the area but perhaps melted or sagged out of exhaustion.

It’s one of the most photographer buildings in the country.

Can you think of any buildings that can compete with the wackiness of this one?
