Architects Create Upside-Down House in Taiwan

Everything inside the American-style house in Taiwan is upside-down, including the car, toilet and fireplace. Even the pasta at the dinner table hangs suspended from its upside-down bowl. The house balances at Huashan Creative Park, which used to be a Japanese plum wine factory but is now an art warehouse with restaurants and an independent film theater.
