This weird looking space-ship like building on the works at Sea World, Shekou reminds one of Star Trek's USS Enterprise. A lot wonder what this structure will be for after it is done. Will it be an office, a restaurant, amusement center, movie-house, dance club or another live band music venue? For now, people in Shekou, Shenzhen just speculate. To some it's a thing of beauty while others think the design is way over the edge and does not blend well with other structures at Sea World. Whatever people think, the fact that they think about it, means only one thing... it's interesting.
