Piano House in China

Sometimes the great things that appeared in the world were made possible only thanks to the enormous ego and power of some people that ruled a country or another. This is how pyramids appeared and the Taj Mahal and I am not sure that ordinary people really wanted them.

Any way, sometimes this is a good thing while some other times the decisions seem simply crazy. Or how would you call the idea of building a house, a hotel in the shape of a piano and whose stairs look like a glass violin in the middle of nowhere. Because this building does exist and it is situated in the Huainan, Anhui province in China.

I love the design of the building, but how to attract tourists in a place where they have nothing else to see. And apparently this was the only reason for its construction: to bring as many tourists as possible in order to improve the local economy. Well, at least they have something unique and with an original design to be proud of.

The house serves as a practice facility and doubles as a concert hall. See additional photos at the Homedit blog. […]
