This beautiful cultural center building is not just a place to house the culture of a young genration— it is also a way to define itself to the world. This building was recently nominated for awards at both this year’s World Architecture Festival and the biennial Inside Festival.
This guest house in Vietnam is officially called Hang Nga Guesthouse, but all locals refer to it as the crazy house. Well, this guest house is indeed unique because it doesn’t compile to any building conventions. This house looks like a fairy tale castle, it has enormous “animals” like a giraffe and a spider, no window is rectangular or round, and it can be visited like a unique museum. This house is architect by Hang Nga and base of the crazy house is a tree. It is truly a little wonder with lavishing styles.
