The Yangcheng Lake, in Kunshan, is famous for the mitten crab, an autumn Chinese delicacy named for their furry claws. With its dark stainless steel shell, white pincers, and hairy claws, the only way this building doesn?t resemble the mitten crab is in size. At three stories the new structure is 16 meters high and 75 meters long. A mitten crab, on the other hand, is about the size of a human palm.
