More crazed individualist architecture

This is ‘Le Palais Ideal’…

“…built single-handedly by the 19th century postman Ferdinand Cheval, who collected its stones during his daily rounds on horseback, and incorporated them into the grand edifice during his afternoons and evenings.”

It took him 33 years to build, with no architectural skills whatsoever. And it looks like the sort of thing you might see on an acid-binge in Switzerland. Or maybe Cambodia. Or India. Or somewhere.
