Half-Melted House

People like to say that this pediatric practice (built in 2016) was inspired by Dr. Seuss, but it isn't. It was inspired by the Krzywy Domek (Crooked House) shopping center in Sopot, Poland, by artists Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg. The doctor who owns the building in Lancaster saw a photo of the shopping center in a book and decided to copy it for his business.
