Explore These Upside Down Houses

If you’re looking for a way to turn your life upside down, look no further: upside-down houses are the interactive attraction you didn’t know you needed!

The Upside(down) of life

All over the world, engineers, architects, and artists are building upside down homes. These are not designed for actually living in, but rather are an interactive art type of exhibit for people to have fun with. 

If you want to have fun with your friends, a different type of play day with your kids, or interesting content for your next Instagram post, consider visiting one of these upside-down houses.
