I am not an architect, but i love architecture since i was a kid.
I love modern and post-modern architecture, Gehry, Wright, Calatrava, Ando, etc..
I thought i had seen it all.. until i saw this insane pics of a Piano / Violin house built in the An Hui Province in China. via arnewde.com
Located in Shanghai, this piano shaped house was built by the Chinese government to attract people to the newly developed area of Huainan, Anhui. The transparent violin contains the stairway that leads into the house.
It is hard to decide between cool or extremely tacky.
