Located in the city of Huainan, An Hui Province, this Piano House is an example of how music and architecture can merge into an exquisite piece of art, whose functionality is only surpassed by its beauty.
The purpose of the building is to increase tourism to the newly developed area and, at the same time, it serves as a place where music students from the local college can practice and perform.
The lustrous piano and the transparent violin leaning against it, are the two components of this building. The entrance to the piano house upstairs goes through the glass violin, on a a multi level staircase constructed from steel.
