The name of this building is "Teh Palace of Culture and Science", so if you don't know the name of it, don't sign it.

Yes, I know the proper name Pałac Kultury i Nauki, and you should read this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PalaceofCultureandScience,_Warsaw

The building was originally known as the Joseph Stalin Palace of Culture and Science (Pałac Kultury i Nauki imienia Józefa Stalina), but in the wake of destalinization the dedication was revoked; Stalin's name was removed from the interior lobby and one of the building's sculptures.

So don't be offended. This was its former name ;-)
