Amazing Upside Down House

The Upside Down House is a project created by a Polish businessman and philanthropist named Daniel Czapiewski, and is located in Poland in the tiny village of Szymbark, and here are a few pics with this house. Rather than simply being a bizarre tourist attraction this house, managed to attract thousands of tourists. The house is also meant to be a profound statement about the Communist era and the state of the world. Czapiewski’s company would normally take three weeks to construct a house, but this one took 114 days because the workers were disorientated by the strange angles of the walls. Many tourists who visit complain of mild seasickness and dizziness after just a few minutes of being in the structure. Now let’s take a look at some pictures with this house.

    I’ve seen rooms built like this but never an entire house. I don’t know how long I’d be able to stay in it.

    That is real art!

  6. September 8, 2007

    That is so cool! It looks like one of the funny buildings in Orlando, FL (USA) like the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not building and such. I can’t imagine living in something like that. Awesome!

  7. September 8, 2007

    Damnit.. I was just in Poland but didn’t know about this. It’s definitely not your average tourist trap. :)

    How does it stay at that angle? I don’t quite get it, there must be steel bars reinforcing it but they’re mysteriously not visible from the ground?

    idk but uhm, kinda weird, like one of those LSD rushs i had back in the ’70s.
    Ofcourse, this house must’ve been invented by one of these east europs.

  31. September 11, 2007

    at first the house looks whackiest one but then it forces us to see things in another dimension!

    i think the significence gives you to this is bullchit. who gives one shit about a upside dwon house when now hundred of thousdand people hove no plae to live in peru. wh we waste money on stupid house like this when real house make homes for so many people? why people care so much for see art when art is not because someone make it to show, but is just there already? so much money there is, and all of it to waste for things that only go for show to other rich people. otherwise wh e can use money for real things like help people how have no house and food, and mother who not is able to feed her childs becuse her father is dies,. this is real importent things. not upsie down house, and famus person who shave her hair. why, we are care about thises thing when real person has not able to live? i is not undrstand this thouts.

  37. Jeremy said:
    September 12, 2007

    In response to that, all i can say is that its the way the world is, none of the rich people care about some little kid in peru with no home… all rich people think about are 2 things: 1. Making more money 2. Showing off that money…
    I am not rich and i dont waste money that could be spent on homeless kids but honestly, its just how people are…

    The commical comments in the video should be met with the reality of the
    projects intention. If things continue as they are, those laughs will change
    to something very much the opposite, with a greater understanding of what
    we failed to believe before.

    When will people ever learn that orientation and oriented

    do NOT translate into orientated – it IS SIMPLY

    oriented and if the tourists were disorientated you mean

    DISORIENTED – Think about it!
