Piano and Violin building, Huainan, China

This amazing house called Piano House was built in Huainan (Anhui Province, China) on the project students of Architecture Department Hefeyskogo University of Technology (Hefey University of Technology), developed in conjunction with the designers of Huainan Fangkai Decoration Project Co.
Piano House consists of two parts, representing the two instruments – violin, transparent, based on semi-transparent piano.
unique building was built for music lovers, but the music has nothing to do. In the violin is the escalator, and the piano – Fair Grounds, where the visitors are plans for streets and suburbs of the city.

The object is created with the filing of the local authorities. Unusual building seeks to attract the attention of Chinese people and tourists to the new developing area, which is the most significant object. Due to the continuous glazing (clear and tinted glass), the premises of the complex are the maximum amount of natural light. And at night, the body of the object is hidden in the darkness, leaving only the visible contours of the silhouettes of the giant neon “tools”.
Despite its popularity, the building is often criticized as a kind of postmodern kitsch and a typical student project, which is much more outrageous than the art and functionality.

Shanghai

Shanghai is a huge city with several district articles containing sightseeing, restaurant, nightlife and accommodation listings — consider printing them all.
Shanghai (上海 Shànghǎi) , with a population of more than 23 million (with over 9 million migrants), is the largest and traditionally the most developed metropolis in Mainland China.
Shanghai was the largest and most prosperous city in the Far East already during the 1930’s. In the past 20 years it has again become an attractive city for tourists from all over the world. The world once again had its eyes on the city when it hosted the 2010 World Expo, recording the greatest number of visitors in the event’s history.
Shanghai is split in two by the Huangpu River (黄浦江 Huángpǔ Jiāng). The most basic division of the area is Puxi (浦西 Pǔxī) West of the river, versus Pudong (浦东 Pǔdōng), East of the river. Both terms can be used in a general sense for everything on their side of the river, but are often used in a much narrower sense where Puxi is the older (since the 19th century) city center and Pudong the mass of new (since the 1980s) high-rise development across the river.
