Architectural photographer Iwan Baan recently shot the Observatory House, designed by Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco and built by architect Tatiana Bilbao in Roca Blanca, .

The house is inspired on the Jantar Mantar Astronomical Observatory, built in Delhi in 1724.

Stefano Boeri from Abitare interviewed Gabriel Orozco about this project, where you can read more about his vision.

More photos of the house with one of the best pools I have ever seen, after the break.
