Upside-Down Dwelling Lures Tourists

FRIDAY, MARCH 4, 2016


An unusual architectural art installation has turned up in Taiwan.

It’s an upside down, three-story American-style home, coated with bright blue, yellow, pink and red paint, of course.

And it’s not just the abode’s facade that is topsy-turvy. From cars to appliances, items traditionally on the floor are screwed to the ceiling of this dwelling, according to reports and numerous social media posts.

The 3,500 square-foot installation, located at Huashan Creative Park in Taipei and organized by Media Sphere Communications, has become a tourist magnet and has drawn international media attention.

According to a press announcement on the News Lens, the house took just over two months to build and reportedly cost $600,000.

So, who’s ready to move in or at least visit? The house will remain on display until July 22.
