I always had that strange deja vu looking at this Performing Centre for Expo 2010 Shanghai.
And I thought what was it, something as straightforward as the UFO couldn't have caused deja vu.
Yes.. the soap on the tray, right in front of the w.c.
It makes a lot senses if the architect has done the conceptual sketch when he's... ahem.. shitting.
The architecture strongly resembles many more things, like Doraemon's favourite pancake 铜锣烧 (below), etc.
Whatever the inspiration might be, it's just cool.
