The Hollywood Hand House (5 pics)


A woman’s hand juts of the earth holding an exposed glass house. What exactly could this mean?

Architect Andreas Angelidakis created this crazy cool concept. When the rain falls, the giant hand appears to be coming out of the water, elegantly holding the glass house.
