Germany:

Anyone know where this interesting looking building is?

Nestled away in the student district of Dresden, Germany is a house which literally sings in the rain.
 
It’s part of a complex called the Neustadt Kunsthofpassage (literally ‘Art Courtyards’): a set of five courtyards which each have a different theme. There’s the courtyard of light and the courtyard of animals, and obviously the courtyard of music!
 
The singing house is the work of sculptor Annette Paul and designers Christoph Roßner and André Tempel, who all live in the building itself. Annette says she was inspired by living in St. Petersburg, Russia, where bad weather would create a ‘rain theatre’ on the windows of her house.
 
With this in mind, she and her fellow tenants designed the intricate network of pipes, funnels and spouts with optimal acoustics to amplify the rain.
 
The facade of the house was also inspired by the idea of a Rube Goldberg Machine, and you can see echoes of these strange contraptions in the web of pipes and funnels which catch the rain as it falls.
