    Stop At: Casa Terracota, Villa de Leyva Colombia

    A clay house that occupies five hundred square meters in Villa de Leyva is considered the largest pottery in the world. It is the Terracotta House, a brick-colored structure that the architect Octavio Mendoza cooked as potters when they produce pots and other decorative objects. This is a construction project that, according to its creator, "turns the land into habitable architecture."
