As a pilot city of modern architecture industrialization in China, Shenyang has been focusing on building a “capital” of modern architectures. However, during this “modern architecture revolution”, some bizarre buildings have attracted the public’s attention.

The thermometer building is 15-floor-high. The indicator of the thermometer is made of LED modulator tubes. The thermometer shows the temperatures on the basis of the temperature tested by the thermometer screen on top of the building.

The Fangyuan Building in Shenyang is in the shape of an ancient coin. It was named as one of the ten ugliest buildings in the world by a lifestyle and travel website owned by CNN.

In 2013, a golden building that looks like a pair of big boxer shorts was built. It later became the office building of a bank. Citizens call it the “golden boxer shorts.”

In April 2014, the construction of the “messy code” building finished. Citizens joke about its appearance, and some even say the building makes people want to “scan” the code with their mobiles every time they pass by.
