Pope Benedict XVI's Retirement Headquarters Looks Like a Giant Halo

The world was shocked when Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation, but we're currently stunned at the retirement quarters 1week1project has proposed for him. 85-year-old Benedict XVI now lives in Castello Gandolfo, and the company has proposed a house for him that sits on a roof close to the Piazza Della Rotonda. It's organized around an atrium as a 360-degree house. We think it looks like a halo, right?
