Oh, It's Just a Chinese Building Shaped Like a Cell Phone

It's not everyday you get to see a building that's shaped like a cell phone. You do today, though. Lucky you!

This building is located in the city of Kunming in Yunnan Province, China. The cell phone structure is quick becoming a landmark in Kunming, reports Chinese site CRI. Probably because it calls for lots of attention.


The building's facade makes up the "buttons," while the "screen" is the upper story windows. And while the buttons and the screen do look nice, the hand (namely the fingers) look phoned-in. They just don't ring true.


All puns intended.
