The House of the Century

And now for something completely different. In the early 1970s, the avant-garde collective Ant Farm, best known for the Cadillac Ranch outside of Amarillo, build a lake house shaped like a giant penis for a Houston arts patron.

I think you’ll find its story surprisingly moving. Check it out.
