THE DANCING HOUSE, CZECH REPUBLIC

The dancing house is a nickname given to an office building that is located in downtown Prague, Czech Republic. The brain behind this one was that of designer and architect Vlado Milunic, who worked with a Canadian architect, Frank Gehry to create magic on this front. The unconventional design of the building has aroused a lot of curiosity from tourists who fleet to the area to click pictures in front of this weird building. The president, Vaclav Havel, who for decades had lived close to this site, had hoped that the building would become a center of cultural activity. Alas, these plans didn’t come true. A lot of MNCs, however, run their companies out of the office space in this building.

UPSIDE DOWN HOUSE, POLAND

This structure is located at the village of Szymbark in Northern Poland. Its construction was completed on the 31st of July, 2007. It may be a bizarre attraction for the tourists today, but this weird building is also meant to double up as a statement about the Communist Era. With 114 days taken for its completion, the house took quite some time to build. The reason for the delay was that the workers were quite baffled due to the weird angling of the walls.

BLUE BUILDINGS, NETHERLANDS

These buildings were created to furnish the cause of being a block of derelict buildings that were intended to be demolished. The deal cracked with the residents of the neighborhood was that until there was a viable plan for the area, this block would remain blue. Once upon a time, in Rotterdam, these houses were not given a second glance. In today’s day, however, they have turned into one of Rotterdam’s most photographed buildings.

    Polish businessman and philanthropist named Daniel Czapiewski undertook the task of making this building to make a profound statement about the Communist era and the state of the world.

    In general,Czapiewski’s company took three weeks to construct a house, but this one took 114 days because the workers were disorientated by the strange angles of the walls.

    When I took my family here for a tour we all were bout to mild seasickness and dizziness after just a few minutes of being in the structure.
