Crazy building, full moon

On a steep side street in Ramat Gan sits a crazy apartment building. We went to visit it last night with Y who has just moved into the neigbourhood.

It was a moonlit night

The tentacles of alien creatures hung over the sides of the crazy building.

Their parents, possibly scavenging for food, roamed the neighbourhood

Surprising shapes inspired by Gaudi confronted us at every turn.
A concrete banana skin helter skelter wrapped around the exterior of the crazy building contains a staircase that allows the visitor to enter the beast from the outside and as well as from the inside.

What a shame that most buildings are not crazy
