The company is launching a competition to create the “most unconventional and unusual liveable spaces on the planet,” it said in a statement Tuesday.

Airbnb has made headlines in the past with quirky vacation rentals like one shaped like a baked potato in Idaho, and a mansion in Malibu designed to resemble the one Barbie made famous.

Now, it’s inviting people to create memorable designs of their own by applying for the program a nd writing an essay about their wild idea.

"The only thing better than pushing the boundaries of style is empowering others to do the same,” said Porter in a statement.

The houses are expected to be built from June to December.
