Architecture, Building and Structure Design Crab Houses Multifuncional complex by Dagmara Oliwa On the vast plain of the Silesian Lowlands, one magical mountain stands alone, covered in fog of mystery, towering over the picturesque town of Sobotka. There, amidst natural landscapes and legendary location, the Crab Houses complex: a research centre, is planned to be. As a part of town's revitalisation project, it is supposed to unleash creativity and innovativeness. The place brings together scientists, artists and local community. The shape of the pavilions is inspired by crabs entering rippling sea of grass. They will be illuminated at night, resembling fireflies hovering over the town.
