Nope I don't know if it is Frank Gehry's, and it's not in Berlin!

Actually I think it was designed by the guy who's designed the replacement to the World Trade Centre, but I'll have to check up on that...

Yes I'm right there!

Having fun??

Oh let me just a moment stay
where time is not and angels play the paeans of the galaxies;
then speed the stardust on its flight
to change dread darkness into light, cold chaos into ecstasy!

Well if you went to Bolton Abbey you certainly would spend a night under the stars, as AFAICR there are no covered buildings in the vicinity at all!

The Devonshire Arms isn't far away  :)

Good fun - yes ;D
How about a building (don't know which) at Salford Quays ?

I say it's at Salford Quays (Manchester) and it's the Imperial War Museum North, designed by Daniel Libeskind.  8) ;D

Hmmm, interesting!
I'll confess at this early point that I don't know, but...

white, sunny rococo style suggests mediterranean

and those curved-round entrances are interesting so I think I'd go for somewhere like Turkey or the Persian Gulf.

Help, anybody?

Then Mye-hiko or Carribic?
One of those must do the trick!

But oops am I in the wrong game, this one just wants a place's name.....?

It looks vaguely Moorish - Cordoba? Seville? Toledo? Granada?
