Hang Nga Crazy House

Artitechture: The Hang Nga Crazy House in Vietnam

The imaginative brainchild of owner Mrs. Dang Viet Nga, the Crazy House has been an evolving work in progress since 1990. The building is a veritable Alice In Wonderland acid trip through an Asian jungle. The exterior resembles five-story-high banyan tree, with uneven window openings and branch-like structures that “grow” along its walls and rise above the roof into the sky, with twisting organic forms and very few right angles.

ArtPadSF 2013 - Eclectix

One of the best aspects about ArtPadSF is it’s manageable size, just enough art display space so that one feels satiated – but not an overwhelming amount making your feet ache and your eyes go jiggy. Each gallery has its own hotel room – converted into a mini gallery, even the bathrooms. There is a restaurant and bar, palm trees and a gorgeous pool, sparkling in the sunlight to kick back and relax by, in-between room hopping.

We’ve shared just a tiny tidbit of the impressive art on exhibit – way too many great artists and art to cover here – just enough to tickle your fancy and get you on down to ArtPad’s happening scene.
