Unusual architecture

Unusual Architecture

This complex in Mitaka, Tokoyo has been designed with only one purpose in mind: to keep octogenarians constantly alert within the confines of their own Electric Kool Aid apartment.
According to the designers, The Reversible Destiny Lofts have been designed under the philosophy that comfort makes you grow old quick, and that the elderly need to be kept on their toes by having physically challenging interiors.
Lopsided floors force the resident to maintain a good sense of balance , strangely located light switches insist we feel around for the light, whilst small veranda doors will ask you to crawl and bend to enter.
Hey, while we’re designing $750,000 apartments based upon keeping the elderly on their toes, why stop there? Electrical sockets that belch acid! Floors that break away, plummeting those who tread upon them into holes filled with used hypodermics and razor wire! Ceiling fans that periodically descend to decapitate those underneath them! It’s like Battle Royale for geriatric housing.

A seven floor, seven-star hotel is being built underwater on what was formerly a tobacco factory. There will be exhibition halls, and restaurants, and all rooms will be sea facing.
