Ran Across the Chinese Piano House

The Piano House in An Hui Province, China, is a showroom for city planners to show off their plans for the Shannan district in Huainan City.
Yes, we musicians do enjoy seeing our instruments displayed in all sorts of ways... in paintings, logos, stationary, and here, architecture.  Instruments endear themselves to their users, becoming beautiful tools.  In general, that is true of all tools - computers, knitting needles, the pen, watering cans, and easels.  All these become venerable subjects of art because the sight of our beloved tools makes us happy.
