Let a thousand windows bloom!

Microsoft should buy this building!
A new office block being built in China is believed to have the most windows of any building of its size in the world.

The nine-storey building, designed by Japanese architect Sako Keiichiro, has close to a 1,000 windows. None of the rooms in the building are completely square or rectangular, corridors wind around and between rooms, and each floor features a mini garden. "It's like a maze inside," said one construction worker, who added that it was the most difficult and time-consuming project he had ever worked on.
P.S. I wondered what labels to give this post. Oddball, I thought. Then, I figured this kind of architecture is in fact art! :)
