Casa Terracota a house made of clay, big pottery piece created by Colombian Architect Octavio Mendoza Morales. Beautiful kitschy with wonderfully executed interiors. He uses porcelain tiles, stained glass, wrought iron to create a wonderful livable space. A must see.

The house is totally built by human hands, in terracota and without a structure under, in wood or steel! It won second place in an international competition of architecture in 2000, in Paris. Every detail is very creative and the house is fully functional! Amazing...More
