Upside Down Houses

Flickr Finds

"What if I should fall right through the center of the earth...oh, and come out on the other side where people walk upside-down?" - Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland.
You wouldn't think the world would have so many upside down houses, but it does. People have built them for all kinds of reasons, from starting up a tourist attraction to commenting on the absurdity of politics.

  1. Upside Down House in Usedom, Germany: Designers Klausdiusz Golos and Sebastian Mikiciuk have a very nonchalant approach to this tourist exhibit, saying, "We didn't do it for a reason. We just wanted to do something different."
  2. Upside Down House at the Old School House Museum in Lee Vining, California: Part of an outdoor exhibit at a roadside museum in California, this tiny shed gets top billing as the "legendary upside-down house!"
  3. Wonderworks in Orlando, Florida: They bill themselves as "Central Florida’s only upside down attraction — an amusement park for the mind, featuring over 100 interactive exhibits."
  4. Upside Down House in Poland: Daniel Czapiewski, an entreprenuer in Poland, built this house to comment on the insanity of contemporary politics (and bring in tourists as well).
  5. Casa de Cabeca para Baixo in Rio: Don't know too much about this upside-down house, except that it's located in Cabo Frio, Rio de Janeiro, and the Flickr member who took the photo says "They are reforming it. It's a Showroom from a house-construction shop."
