And you thought our crap was bad...

From Newsday:

The first U.S. example of architecture against death -- otherwise known as “reversible destiny architecture” -- is now selling in East Hampton for $4 million. And the home has been named one of the country's Top 10 Weird but Wonderful Homes.

The philosophy behind the architecture is to disorient the occupants while at the same time keep them challenged and alert for a long life.

Built as an extension to a 1964 A-frame house based on Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture, the "Bioscleave House" comes — thankfully — with directions for use.

A second rate copy of the architecture of Friedensreich Hundertwasser. This crap can't hold a candle to that man's oeuvre.

This Hundertwasser design is my favorite: a hiking trail to the grove of trees on the roof.

Top that Queens Botanical Garden!
