An 11-story building shaped as a mobile phone was seen in Yunnan Province's capital, Kunming, on Saturday. The structure has captured the public's attention since it was erected, CRIonline reports.
The windows of the "cell phone building" comprise the facade's numbered buttons, with the top windowed office area made up to look like the phone's screen. Complete with a design that looks like a hand is holding the phone, the building has been a head-turner in the Yunnan capital.

Lately, many cities are erecting feature buildings, which don unique designs. The "cell phone building" is sure to be something of a landmark for Kunming.
