Artist - Facteur Cheval
Title - Palais Ideal (Perfect Palace)
Location - Hauterives, France
Facteur Cheval was a mild-mannered mailman by day and a wildly inspired pseudo-architect and builder by night. His strange architectural masterpiece Palais Ideal, took him decades to construct and was finished in the early 1900s after 10,000 days of solemn construction. He had no formal design or construction training and learned as he went.
