Anhui Winery Builds Replicated US Congress to House Toilet

Anhui Winery Builds Replicated US Congress to House Toilet
May 20, 2014 By eChinacities.com

The Chinese craze for replicating famous landmarks is well documented and you can find the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben and even the White House in various backwater towns in China. Now the Capitol has joined the ranks of great Chinese replicas, as it has been recreated as a toilet in a winery in Anhui province.

The 371 Square meter bathroom is an exact replica of the Washington landmark, complete with pillars, a balcony and the iconic dome. The designers have added their own touches however, by decorating the interior columns with silver sequins, to give a disco ball effect.

This bathroom doesn’t stand alone: There are at least 10 provincial government buildings around China that exactly replicate the White House, one of which made headlines in 2007 when it was revealed that the building had cost nearly one third of the district’s annual revenue.

The winery, when asked to give a comment, said that they were just trying to ‘do something different.’

A little disrespectful and childish if you ask me. How would they feel if the great hall of the people was recreated as a toilet?

That's money well spent. Meanwhile, in the schools for Anhui's countryside, shitty schools that won't give any chance to the kids... That's how the 2008 stimulus package have been spent.
