In the heart of Dresden, Germany’s creative wonderland, Neustadt Kunsthofpassage, you’ll find the architectural sibling of jazz music.

Created by sculptor Annette Paul and designers Christoph Rossner and André Tempel, a quirky blue façade has an intricate system of brass-inspired zigzag funnels and gutters designed to produce faint musical sounds when it rains.

The building is part of an arts project called the Courtyard of Elements. Neustadt Kunsthofpassage also has a “Courtyard of Metamorphoses” and the “Courtyard of Mythical Creatures” – definitely an interesting neighborhood that has become a tourist attraction and playground for photographers.
