Bizarchitecture (II)

“A doctor can bury his mistakes, but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines.” – Frank Lloyd Wright

The Crooked House (Krzywy Domek), in Sopot, Poland, designed by architect Szotynscy Zaleski, was inspired by the children’s illustrations created by Jan Marcin Szancer for fairytales and by the artwork of Per Dahlberg. The home features three floors and was built to give it the feeling that although it belongs in the area it has melted or sagged out of exhaustion. Located in a shopping centre in downtown Sopot, the Crooked House has become one of the most photographed buildings in the country.Bizarchitecture(II)
