Nail Houses 

Speaking of China, while the country is growing incredibly quickly, not everyone is part of that growth.

Across China, where new developments are keeping pace with the rapidly growing economy, reports continue to surface so-called “nail houses.” These properties, standing alone amid the ruins of other buildings, belong to owners who have stood their ground and resisted demolition.

The images are bizarre to behold.
