Top 10 Amazing Upside Down Buildings

Over the weeks and months of doing this blog, we have all seen some rather odd, but also rather cool thing, places and animals. But in truth it is not that hard to find those sorts of things because, in this crazy upside down world, there is crazy upside down things! Before this opening, text starts to sound more like a Lewis Carroll novel I had better get it started…

The thing with all these upside down buildings and houses is that they are mostly made to bring in us tourists. And this large red barn style house made by “Pirateninsel Rügen” is one of the truly big success stories, because before this was built no-one had heard of the village of Putbus. They do now and every year thousands flock to see this very building.

This is “WonderWorks” in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and it began life as a Top Secret research laboratory on a remote island in the Bermuda Triangle. legend has it that a man-made tornado was unleashed throughout the laboratory and it was carried thousands of miles away. Website story behind, it really is a very cool place indeed and I love it!

We have seen many upside down houses in this post, but this one made by “Irek Glowacki and Marek Rozhanski” is extra special because not only is it a full size 8 bedroom house, but EVERYTHING is upside down! The furniture, the car even the toys in the kids rooms!

This amazing art installation is designed by Dennis Oppenheim and is called “Device to Root Out Evil”  and for me was the very best example of an upside down building I could find, and the fact that it is balanced on its steeple is what makes it so cool.

  2. These are so unexpected! Cool! What I wonder is why they are all slanted – the one in Korea looks as if it is the only one you could actually live in. However, I would be very concerned about the car over the porch – that could be a drawback. Once again, you have boggled my mind.

  3. Awesome!!! That was so cool! At our Six Flags (amusement park) they used to have a sideways house, and you’d walk in and everything is sideways, and then when you went to roll an orange down the table, it rolled up the table! It was awesome, and very disorienting!

    This is a great top 10. Who knew there was even such a thing! Russell, you still have one of my favorite sites. Fun, odd, fact filled beauties! I’ve got to check out the amusement park. Wish I could make it to others.

  5. What wondrous things people come up with! I particularly liked the house that looked like it had fallen down the mountainside and the house at #6 because it looks like it was built to fit into the landscape. Great post Russell!

  6. We cut back research and development at all levels. It is unwise and has slowed down our ingenuity. We have now become a nation of silly stuff and fluff. But we will go back on track and the Jetson’s will be back in outer space with their space cars and living on small planetoids.
