The Crooked House, Sopot Poland

This is a little specialty of a structure that has been on my bucket list for a while. This crooked house is a bizarrely shaped building in a small town of Sopot on the coast of Poland. It was designed by SzotyƄscy & Zaleski, who were greatly inspired by the fairytale drawings of Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg. The building looks to be in a whole other alternate reality, as the usual sharp edges are now finely curved and sloping. The Crooked House sits in a small shopping mall, and is home to several different shops, such as a coffee shop on the first floor. I think this building is exceptional because it looks like a normal building that has been replicated through a funhouse mirror, to alter and shape all aspects in a different way. It is a very inviting and warm structure, with plenty of opportunities for social interaction and absolute awe.
