If the name doesn’t give it away, its origins will. The Universe House’s design, created by Gabriel Orozco (artist) and Tatiana Bilbao (architect) — is based on the “Jantar Mantar Astronomical Observatory, which was built in Jaipur, in 1724.” Click here for first picture in gallery.

Orozco – who visited the observatory in 1996 – wanted a house that captured the concept of the Indian building.
