The Crooked House (Krzywy Domek)

The Krzywy Domek, aka. Crooked House, located in Sopot, Poland is a funny looking building. The architecture is based on the drawings of 2 famous painters/illustrators in Poland: Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg.
The Krzywy Domek was built in 2004. It is approximately 4,000 square meters in size and is part of the Rezydent shopping center.
The Krzywy Domek honours its guests in a special way. It is the tradition of this mysterious place that people who participate in cultural events put their signatures on the wall of the Krzywy Domek, named “The Wall of Fame”, which is the Polish version of the American Hollywood Walk of Fame. This is one of many extraordinary ideas carried out by creators of the Krzywy Domek which caused the building to be nominated in 2009 to the 7 wonders of the Tri-city (Sopot, GdaƄsk, Gdynia) competition. It was liked very much by the Internet users and had crowds of fans.
