The Upside-Down House was created by Daniel Czapiewski in the village of Szymbark, northern Poland, on July 31, 2007. It represents not merely a bizarre tourist attraction, but is also meant to be a profound statement about the Communist era. It took 114 days to build the house, because the workers were disorientated by the strange angles of the walls.
AD Classics: Bavinger House / Bruce Goff. "Designed in 1950 and largely owner-built over a period of four years...the house was described by Goff at its first major open house as 'a continuing study in contemporary architecture'. Spatial and temporal continuities are its theme." —Jeffrey Cook. The Architecture of Bruce Goff. Harper & Row, 1978
