Poland's Mind-Melting Crooked House

You may recall the unusual architectural constructs created by photo manipulation expert Michael Jantzen and think you know better than to believe that such wacky, funhouse-like structures actually exist in this world, but think again. Krzywy Domek, translated as Crooked House, is a shopping center in Sopot, Poland that curves and slants for real! There's no photo editing tools used to depict this unconventionally structured edifice.

Designed by Szotyńscy & Zaleski, the multipurpose building boasts a unique look that was inspired by the fairy tale illustrations of Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg. Like Jantzen's imagined works, this venue has a cartoonish appeal. It looks like an animated house, bouncing in place to a jolly tune. There's a jovial liveliness to the place that seems very inviting. How could a family not be drawn to the welcoming Crooked House?
