//PAVILION IN THE SITE OF REVERSIBLE DESTINY
In Japan you can find the most colorful home in the world; Pavilion in the Site of Reversible Destiny - that lies in the Yoro Park in Gifu. The house was built in 1995, the architects are Shusaku Arakawa and Madeline Gins. It's a carefully considered construction of undulating planes, shifting colors, and disorienting spaces. It makes me think of Dali's surrealistic approach on his art combined with pop art influences. This postmodern architecture style or movement emerged in the 1960s as a reaction against the austerity, formality, and lack of variety of modern architecture. In Japan you can find loads of buildings in this post modern style, but my favorite must be this beautiful, strange building that is great on the outside but even more from the inside.
