The Barbarian,

(No one can like the cars of course). That said you've found the exact perspective. Straight horizon, middle vertical exact. The physics of the building is very tangible. You don't need 3D - this picture makes you "feel" the heavyness of the building. And that light blue sky. From the fifties

Thanks, Torgny. I was taken by that same massiveness contrasted by the glass boxes behind it.

Not bad. There are some really interesting grotesques around the perimeter of the building, each unique. You may have seen them earlier.

Unfortunately, bureaucracy exploited terrorism to decree that no one may photograph anything inside the building lest some politician be embarrassed.
