Construction for the big expansion of Museum of the North at the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus back in 2004.

Thanks, Frank. It was captured with a Coolpix 3700 in those days with transition from film. I almost liked the internal paneling of the right part better compared to how it was finally covered up, but it is a great landmark building in its final state too.

Well, I don't know how the building looks now, but I too find the paneling to have eye appeal as shown in your image. It also energized my imagination, as my first impression when looking at your shot was of a misshapen ship. I quite enjoyed this photo, as is, whether or not the building was ever to be completed.

No doubt an analyst would have a field day with my remarks.   ;D

Nice one Frank! BTW... is the old parliament building still there in Bonn? I visited it in 1994 and I was quite impressed with its modern and simplistic design :)

there are several buildings formerly used as parliament in our town:
the Museum Alexander König, first after WW2
the torn down old parliament
the interims old Waterwork
the last Bonn parliament, the round Behnisch house

In 1994, you probably saw our newest parliament building, designed by Behnisch. Yes, it is still here in Bonn, now used by the WCCB, world conference centre Bonn.

construction begins with a good plan, a lot of drawings and an application for a building permit ...

this is a "green house" featuring plant cover all over its surface what makes us think hard on how to install solar panels to drive the thermal heat pump system (we want to be independent from any net when it comes to heating & cooling)

By the way.

An 87-year-old Japanese designer just won the 'Nobel Prize of architecture.' Here are some of his most stunning masterpieces

It can be both fascinating and dangerous to look up in a construction site.
