I am wondering if this building on a chinese painting is for real ? Or just if something close exists... it may be on an island and is rather cubic... I have nearly zero knowledge of chinese architecture.

The text put along side the drawing may help to know if it is pure fiction, so here it is. I also have zero knowledge of reading chineese too... so sorry.
