Spaceship Effect

I found Jim’s entry a little late but as they say – better late than never!

A Unique Title For Me

It looks like something out of a classic sci-fi film, but this is actually somebody’s house made to resemble a flying saucer that is hovering over the Earth’s surface in this Alpine village.  It is nothing more than an optical illusion, but it must be serene living up here.  This was achieved using an architectural concept known as the forced perspective.  This technique manipulates our brains by employing a series of small adjustments that alter our depth perception making a space look larger, or smaller, or farther, or closer than they really are.  Its curved design and oval windows on all sides creates this spaceship effect, because of the decorative windows that look like mirrors from the outside which are positioned to reflect whatever is outside.
