Is this university's design a ripoff of Harry Potter's Hogwarts?
Hogwarts is a fictional school where Harry Potter goes to hone his magical wizard powers. And while we all know that Hogwarts is not real, there is one school in China that looks like the exact clone of the magical school. In Xinle City, Hebei Province, there is a new university called Hebei Academy of Fine Arts that looks so much like Hogwarts, when you visit you might as well grab your Quidditch broomstick.
The castle-like architecture of the university building mixed with the massive clock tower make it look almost identical to Hogwarts. The building is supposed to open for students by the end of the year. The designers of the mysterious university say that the layout is not modeled after Harry Potter but rather European medieval castles.
The actual Hogwarts. Ummm looks familiar.
