As the housing crisis in Tartu Estonia spirals out of control, more residents are being forced into the bleak reality of living in an upside down home.
An innovative idea in the early 80s USSR as a way to combat what the Soviets saw as a spacial issue whilst also opposing the liberal art noveau phenomenen- which they considered hippie bullshit. By building upside down homes next to regular ones, they fit together like a puzzle, and thus saved valuable wasted square footage.
With so many students flooding Tartu now, families are being forced to rent their homes and move into these retro, impractical homes. Speaking to a local resident, she said orientation wasn't an issue but was annoyed by how the ceiling toilet kept flooding the kitchen.
