Hitting the right notes – 24.09.07

If you thought that the relationship between classical music and architecture began and ended with Greek architect/composer Iannis Xenakis, then you’d be wrong. To prove that the two disciplines are perfectly in tune, Chinese architects have orchestrated this exhibition centre in Huinan city, Anhui province. The centre takes the form of two gigantic musical instruments, with the main part of the facility housed in the piano, and the entrance and staircase in the transparent violin.
