House of China (瓷房子), a landmark building in Northern Chinese city of Tianjin, opens on Monday (September 3). The building is clad with 400 million porcelain pieces, took 5 years to complete, and reportedly cost USD65 million on decorations.

Most of the porcelain pieces and vases are from ancient Chinese dynasties, which include some precious jade figurines and rare jewels… hence the outrageous cost.
