Poland's Brain-Hurting 'Crooked House' is Not an Illusion

New, 3 comments

Featured today on Design You Trust, Poland's Krzywy Domek, or Crooked House, was designed by the Polish firm Szoty?scy & Zaleski as part of a shopping center in Sopot. The building, which was completed in 2004 and measures more than 43,000 square feet, has zero visible 90 degree angles, and looks like it was constructed from taffy that's been squished and pulled. Crooked House was inspired by the works of Polish illustrator Jan Marcin Szancer, who made his living drawing fantastic scenes and creatures for some 150 children's books. The result is an office space and gawker hotspot that looks very much like it belongs in Disneyland's Toon Town, or perhaps like it was plucked from the mind of Dr. Seuss.
