Caption: The World's Safest House. The house was designed by American architect Eugene Tsui. The aspect is based on a microscopic arthropod called a tardigrade. The building is claimed to be earthquake-proof, safe from damage by termites and fire-resistant. Tsui built the house in a residential street in Berkeley, California.
