Unii oameni isi doresc o garsoniera, altii doresc sa locuiasca intr-un elefant



In 1758, French architect Charles-François Ribart proposed a three-level structure for the site where the Arc de Triomphe now stands: it’d take the form of a stone elephant, complete with rudimentary air conditioning, furniture that folds into the walls, and drainage that circulates out the trunk of L’elephant triomphal. Ribart’s zoomorphic architecture has a more contemporary cousin: in Margate, New Jersey, a 124-year-old elephant structure named Lucy is the last remaining sculpture of its kind and dubbed “the world’s largest elephant.”

Personally, I think that would have been a helluva lot more interesting than what Le Folks ended up with.
