Unusual house design
A matryoshka doll is a Russian nesting doll which is a set of dolls of decreasing sizes placed one inside the other. A set of matryoshkas consists of a wooden figure which separates, top from bottom, to reveal a smaller figure of the same sort inside, which has, in turn, another figure inside of it, and so on. The idea inspired the designers of David Jameson Architect, who created Matryoshka House in Maryland, USA. If you look closely at home, it is not difficult to guess why it got such a name. The house consists of several volumes that are embedded into each other - the wooden part of the house is situated between two concrete walls. And inside this structure there is another sub-cube, which is a meditation room.

Only the authors of the projects can explain why their buildings are turned upside down. the tiny village of Szymbark adorns one of these upside down houses, by the way, you see it on the main photo. This creative project was completed by a Polish businessman and philanthropist named Daniel Czapiewski in 2007. Typically, his company builds houses in three weeks, but this project took 114 days because the workers were slightly confused by the structural design. Why was it necessary to put the house upside down? Daniel asserts that it is his view on the current state of the world. I can hardly argue with him. But Czapiewski was not the first. Wonderworks Upside Down Building in Florida was opened in 1998. There are also upside down in California, South Korea, café in Japan and so on.
