    Krzywy Domek, translated as Crooked House, is a shopping center in Sopot, Poland that curves and slants for real! There's no photo editing tools used to depict this unconventionally structured edifice. Designed by Szotyńscy & Zaleski, the multipurpose building boasts a unique look that was inspired by the fairy tale illustrations of Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg. Like Jantzen's imagined works, this venue has a cartoonish appeal.
