Wuxi Grand Theatre By PES Architect

PES-Architects in the year 2008 took the first prize in the international invited architectural competition for the design of the Wuxi Grand Theatre.

The main thing observable when it comes to the Wuxi Grand Theatre is the location. There is an artificial peninsula lying on Taihu Lake northern shore and since there is a highway bridge, the location compares to the well-known Sydney Opera House.

From Below By Michael Rohde

If you sleep on your floor and stare up on the ceiling, you might see the world a little different but it will definitely not be something equivalent to what Michael Rohde, a German photographer and artist, has been able to create. The perspective of the rooms as the German artist has done might seem comprehensible and perhaps show some mathematical logical until you are drawn into the self-contained images and aesthetics.

Anywhere Mouse

With the Arc Mouse, one sees finesse in its real sense that makes a promise of bringing to the computer a distinct user experience. Probably you do not like the mini-mouse mostly usable with laptops due to their miniscule nature.

Holding the small mouse is not something that is very comfortable and while on the road, it is not one you can use.
