House-changer. This building is located in the Polish village of Szymbark and is the creation of the architect and artist Daniel Chapievski. The unusual design of the upside-down house lies in the fact that the grass and the ground under the stone base are also imitated. Naturally, in reality, everything is at the very top of the house. At the same time, the house is quite stable and you can live in it. The construction of such a unique facility lasted 114 days. The architect's strange project surprised the builders, but the house was erected according to the plan. Now the house has become one of the most interesting Polish landmarks; not only curious tourists come here, but also architects who want to scoop up new ideas from their colleague.
Crooked house in Polish Sopot. And again, Polish architects distinguished themselves. Famous Polish illustrator Jan Marcin Szenser and Swedish artist Per Dachlberg live in this house.

House-test. In Mitaki, a suburb of Tokyo, there is the so-called "Reversible Destiny" complex: 9 crooked and ridiculous houses, life in each of which turns into a test. In them it is not clear where the toilet or the switch is, everything is out of place. Such an intense life, according to the architect, awakens instincts and, as a result, lengthens life. In this case, most of the Russians should be long-livers, because they have been living in "test houses" all their lives!
House-planet. The Arab Sheikh Hamad, who is a member of the UAE royal family, could afford such a mobile home. The building is designed for traveling in the desert. In 1993, the house even got into the Guinness Book of Records. Its height is 12 meters, and its width is 20. Inside the dwelling, made in the shape of a globe, there are as many as 4 floors, on which there are 4 bedrooms and as many as 6 bathrooms.
The house-book is located in Kansas, USA. This building is not only an interesting object, but also the State Central Library. It seems that the design of all libraries in a similar style would lead to an increase in the number of readers. It is curious that local residents also participated in the development of the design of the building, who were asked to choose books that are in one way or another connected with Kansas City. It was these books that were presented in the innovative look of the library, thereby further encouraging residents to visit it.
House-banknote in Lithuania. It was opened to visitors in 2008 and is called Office Center 1000. This house with a banknote-like facade is rented by two large local banks in Kaunas. It was this type of structure that became a kind of advertisement for their activities. In the design of the facade, 4,500 tiles of Dutch glass of various shapes and sizes are used. The banknote depicted on the building was 1000 litas, issued back in 1926.

Dancing House in Prague. This building is also called waltzing. The house was built in the historical center of Prague, while it absolutely stands out from the cityscape. Initially, the conservatives were critical of the appearance of such a building, but over time, the building was recognized as one of the outstanding works of architecture of the 20th century. For local residents, this house is a "glass", the guides also call it "Ginger and Fred", recalling that it was these famous dancers who inspired the amazing shape of the building.
Iron house. Robert Bruno spent 110 tons of steel and 30 years to build his house. Despite the fact that the area of the house is 3000 m2, it is impossible to fully live in it, because every step is echoingly given. But the house can be used as a scenery for some fantastic movie.
Capsule lock. This building is located in Japan, it was designed by the architect Kisho Kurokawa. This is the world's first example of "concise" architecture. The house consists of individual capsules or modules.
