Crazy House - Dalat
Crazy House is in Dalat. It is a free form structure that is being built out of reinforced concrete by a fascinating
Lady. She is the daughter of a Russian man and a Vietnamese woman. In Dalat she is called the Crazy Lady. She
has a degree in Architecture from a university in Hong Kong. The building is her home but more than that it is a
hotel which is now open, even though it is not complete. You may have a room in a tree or a cave. The rooms start
at $35 USD. There are rooms and gardens and everywhere is concrete. Concrete animals, trees and mountains. There
is a concrete house that has elements of a temple and a chalet. In the main building is a restaurant and the lady’s
office. This is a must see when in Dalat. Besides being an architect, developer and hotel proprietor I think she
is also a romantic.
Just inside the main entrance on the left are two concrete Giraffes. Stairways around them lead to rooms in the
Dining room in the main building.
View of the garden. A small bridge crosses a pond. There are also birds in cages.
Sculpture which contains passage ways to and from rooms and main building.
Entrance to the sculpture, a stairway and a bridge all connecting the different rooms and the main building.
The man is painting one of the bridges. This is a work in progress.
A pond in the garden. There are fish in the pond and a bridge at one end.
Part of the main building, this has elements of a Temple, Pagoda and a chalet.
