These 7 Mind-Bending Buildings Will Blow You Away

These crazy structures will have you doing a double-take.

"Cracked" Building

British artist Alex Chinneck's sculpture installation, "Take My Lightning But Don't Steal My Thunder" stunned visitors in London's Covent Garden. It looks like the building has "cracked" and one half is levitating.

Upside Down House

Visitors can walk on the ceiling of this house, an attraction in China. Created by a Polish designer, this home features furniture that looks like it's suspending gravity and a sloping floor which makes guests feel even more disoriented.

Floating House

From far away, this woodland home, created by Marcin Tomaszewski of Reform, looks like a floating box. When you look closer, you'll find the first level of the hour is made of mirrored panels.

House 1

Located in Washington D.C.'s National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden, Roy Lichtenstein's famed sculpture changes appears to "spin" and move inward and outward as you slowly walk around it. See the optical illusion in action in this video.

Victorian Illusion

In 2013, London's Barbican Centre commissioned an installation by Argentine artist Leandro Erlich, called "Dalston House." Visitors could "scale" or hang out of windows in a Victorian row house — but it was just an exterior façade with a mirror looming over it.

Dancing House

Croatian-Czech architect Vlado Milunić and Frank Gehry teamed up to design Prague's Dancing House, which is also nicknamed Fred and Ginger, after the legendary dancing duo. 

Sliding House

In another installation by British artist Alex Chinneck, "From the knees of my nose to the belly of my toes," the façade of an ordinary house in the U.K. appears as if it's sliding to the ground. According to Inhabitat, the work explores themes of urban decay.
