Poland's 'Krzywy Domek' Puts Slanted Buildings Back in the Spotlight

I want to know why it took so long for me to see Poland's Krzywy Domek, or "crooked house." The Leaning Tower of Pisa sits only slightly askew, yet it is 10 times more famous than the Krzywy Domek.

The Krzywy Domek was originally built as part of a shopping center in Sopot, Poland. Szotynscy Zaleski was inspired to build the Krzywy Domek after seeing the drawings of Per Dahlberg and Jan Marcin Szancer, which can be found lining the walls of the crooked house.
