The Chinese people are so good at so many things these days that you start wondering what inspires them. Point of correction,please. They have been this good all along but too silent on such issues. When I saw the photo above, I could not stop wondering how that idea came about. You can call it “free madness creativity” or something not too far from it.
What I eventually found out about this creative piece is that the owners of this house felt the government had offered too low a compensation for them to move out of their house for the highway to be built there.
As it is now, neither tenant nor government wanted to budge and so, both came to what is usually referred to as “a gentleman’s agreement.” That is what you are seeing in the photo. I however wonder how anyone can afford to go to sleep in such circumstances.
