This extremely unique building is an Huainan City, China. Built to display the layout pattern of the newly-built area in the city, the building is shaped like a piano and a violin. Not much else to say about it. Just a really neat pic.

Implications - All facets of design, from architecture to fashion, are sporting new, more thematic elements as of late. In today's preference-specific market, consumers are more attracted to things that have a specific theme they can relate to or are familiar with. Thus, buildings like this one in China are beginning to bear elements like instruments, food, or fashion to emphasize their purpose and express individuality.
