Some people just can’t stand living in a normal house and Pierre Cardin is one of them.
As the story goes, Pierre Cardin was looking to buy a nice house on the Cote d’Azur, but was horrified by all the unoriginal designs that he had seen and that didn’t match his avant-garde fashion designs . That one day he stumbled upon a construction site, where an architect by the name of Antti Lovag was building a bubble-house for some industrialist who happened to have died. Cardin was thrilled to acquire the almost finished residence that finally satisfied his exigent taste.
Not everyone liked Lovag‘s creation when it was finished in 1990, many went as far as to call it Crazy-house, but now it has become a historic monument.
