I saw this strange building on the main road into Zakopane, and it really interested me. It looks exactly what Guidi would have built if he was an artist in Zakopane instead of in Barcelona. I love the way the two architectural styles are so seamlessly blended in this building.

If you want to find out more about the house (and are willing to read Polish or at least use Google translate), here is an interesting interview.

By the way, they say that the best camera is the one in your hand. I shot this with my phone and the processed it in Photomatix afterwards.
