Roller Coaster Apartments

We’ve seen all sorts of weird architecture, but this was a new idea even to us.

This is the Everrich 2 apartment complex in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, designed by DWP Architects.

It has unquestionably been designed to look like a roller coaster, although the architects try to claim otherwise. Apparently the idea is to capture the natural continuous breezes and sunlight and use them to heat and cool the building as appropriate, giving the structure it’s very own eco-friendly climate control. It also has green roofs, to try and make the monstrosity blend with the local hills.

To be honest though, we’re pretty convinced that they should just build a roller coaster around the roof – we’d certainly want to stay there…
