Rain Showers Sprout Musical Flowers!

May 17, 2012 / Fun & Favorites

Rain showers sprout musical flowers? Well not exactly, but wouldn’t we all love it if the rain could hum us our own personal tune or perhaps trigger a blossoming melody? Well, the lucky inhabitants of one musically inspired building in Dresden, Germany have got it made! Their extremely colorful and artistically designed one of a kind building was constructed with what is being called “The Funnel Wall”, but more accurately – it’s known as Neustadt Kunsthofpassage. When it rains, the water trickles down through an intricate system of gutters and funnels that make a beautiful and unique song every time!

According to Atlas Obscura, “when the rain starts to fall, this colorful drain and gutter system attached to the outside of a building in the Neustadt Kunsthofpassage turn into charming musical instruments. The Funnel Wall is one of the strangest and most enjoyable attractions in Dresden’s student district in the new town. ”

We’re beginning to wonder if this is where GreenBox artist Yangyang Pan got her inspiration for “Every Time That it is Raining” from? Probably not, but none the less, it may not be so bad to be stuck inside on a rainy day – that is…if you reside in the Neustadt Kunsthofpassage.

This is most definitely a truly creative and artistic way to enjoy the rain!
