The Chinese Piano House

A friend posted a picture of this house on facebook because it reminded her of another friend, Kathy.  I understand why: Kathy’s family are all  extremely gifted in music – singing and playing instruments; they can play an array of instruments and sing an array of melody and harmony parts and Kathy has the know how to advise on sound settings in concert situations.  Sweet Kathy is the specialist in keeping the “harmony” in the family, I believe.  We’ve shared some very special times together and they’ve had a significant part in encouraging my son on his road to becoming the successful musician he is today.  As only true friends can do, they have also stood by our family through some very grave experiences in our lives and they will always be very dear to us.

Anyway, I wanted to know more about  The Piano House. Here’s what I’ve learned: It is in Huainan, Anhui province, China and was designed by the students of the architectural design faculty of Hefei University of Technology with the designers of a company called “Huainan Fangkai Decoration Project Co”.  Inside of the violin is the escalator to the building. This building was built for music lovers and acts as a performance and practicing place to music students from the local college in Huainan City, east China. But it has a dual function – it also serves as the local urban planning exhibition hall for the developing region, displaying various city plans and development prospects in an effort to draw interest into the recently developed area.
