The Crazy House of Dalat

You may have seen a picture of the Crazy House in Dalat, Vietnam, but you need to see more because it looks different from every angle! It's even changed since we posted about it in 2012. Jürgen Horn and Mike Powell made time to take a tour and see every thing from the roof to the new construction in progress.
Conceived by Vietnamese architect Đặng Việt Nga, the Crazy House opened in 1990 as a guest house. Her creation immediately made a splash on the architectural scene, with its cave-like rooms and organic tree-like passageways (mostly) drawing praise. Throughout its life, the Hằng Nga (as it’s officially known) has undergone continuous renovations and expansions; a new aquatic-themed room was being crafted during our visit.
