Fake Water Cube Building Spotted in Sichuan, China

We've long known about certain companies in China “borrowing inspiration” from more well known gadget makers, but it looks like architects aren't safe from copycat syndrome either. Check out this spa building in Chongqing, the capital of Sichuan (where the earthquakes happened), which looks a little like it may have been designed by someone with just a little bit of Beijing Olympics mania. Hey, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? [Shanghaiist]



I wonder how Howard Roark would respond.
