Ty’s Take | Singing in the Rain

Singing in the Rain, Courtyard of Elements, Dresden, Germany

Seems like forever since I kicked off the week with a music Monday post, so today you’re in for a real treat. This next one combines architecture and music into one impressively melodic display.

Feast your eyes (and ears) on The Courtyard of Elements

So this house in the Dresden area of Germany was transformed as an arts project by Annette Paul (sculptor) and Christoph Rossner and André Tempel (designers). The trio actually live in the house too… How cool would it be to crash that pad for a weekend?

You can tell just by looking at it, the system of drains and funnels is pretty intricate. And it has to be. Everything was designed so when it rains, the building sings and provides passersby with a subtle and soft melody. The aluminum system shares a lot in common with the form/structure of musical instruments. Not to mention, the colors are pretty killer!

So instead of letting grey skies and rain get the people of Dresden down, they can keep smiling and singing and strolling to their next destination… awesome!
