    What to Expect
    Visit: Casa Terracota, Villa de Leyva Colombia

    When people come across Casa Terracota during their visit to Villa de Leyva - a small town in Boyacá, Colombia - they immediately feel both attracted and intrigued: What is this place? Who designed such an enormous building of irregular shapes, colors and textures? Why? What is it used for? Who’s the author of it? Who owns it nowadays? How does it feel to step inside or, even, to inhabit it?

    Besides from being the biggest piece of pottery in the world, Casa Terracota is a matchless work of art: It merges not only architecture and design, but also all the arts and crafts known. This happens because its designer—Colombian architect Octavio Mendoza Morales—believes that they are all key tools in the process of creating innovative spaces, where alternative standards of living can take place; friendly lifestyles not only for the building’s residents, but also for their surrounding community and environment.

    The house was unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. Unique in its shape, but especially its material. It was great to be able to walk inside and on top of the house, and see this work of art up close. The view from the roof was quite impressive as well. The entrance fee is, in
