A new way to dream, a new way to see things

September 11, 2008

Against the backdrop of a cloudy blue sky, the upside-down house on the left is exactly what it has been built for.

With roof resting on sandy gravel, its supposed foundation is oriented facing up the sky. The building appears to have been toppled by the wind or carried to the spot by some torrent from a riverbed. Definitely unconventional, the house gives visitors a chance to look at things differently.

Built in Trassenheide, Germany, it radically diverges from the traditional perspective of construction. (Photo Credit; AP/FrankHormann).
