Crooked house, classic colors

Introducing, "The Crooked House" in Poland. Roald Dahl and Lewis Carroll would be so proud.

The most photographed building in Poland, this commercial mall is located in the Rezydent shopping center in Sopot, Poland.

It houses pubs and coffee houses, as well as other businesses. Kinda Gaudi-esque, don't you think?

The building design was inspired by the fairytale illustrations of Jan Marcin Szancer and

the drawings of the Swedish artist and Sopot resident Per Dahlberg. I love when architecture takes cues from such whimsical sources. Why must everything be boxy, gray and boring?

Love the blue stained glass window panels. I can only imagine what those cost to fit such irregular shaped window frames...

The unusual roof is composed of sheet metal with enamel roof tiles in green, sea blue and Parisian blue. It's been thought to look like dragon scales, which I think is the coolest imagery.

I love the cheerful yellow, green and turquoise accents. It just makes you smile, you know?
