The Palais Bulles, or "Palace of Bubbles" is the work of architect Antti Lovag.  Also known as the Pierre Cardin house, it was built in 1989 on a rocky cliff overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in Theoule, France. 

Lovag  has a love for playful, spherical architecture.  The spherical forms he incorporates are constructed of lightweight mesh and rods that are literally rolled around by Lovag and his clients until they feel the placement is appropriate.  The placement of the windows is also chosen by his clients on site.

Although Lovag's work is often admired, he has had few clients.  Perhaps that's because of his approach to design: “I don’t know what it’s going to be like, I don’t know when it’s going to be finished, and I don’t know how much it’s going to cost.”
