Hi inessa and to you Tom. The place is an amazing engineering fete. Thanks for the visit.

Cheers, Rob.

Out of this world really, isn't it? The grey steely effect is shown up very well against that pale pink and grey mottled sky, well done! I do love those pinpricks of light along the side too. Are they really windows? I agree with Tom that it looks like wheel or tyre. What a building!

Very best wishes to you, and thanks for sharing this, or I would never have known of its' existence. :)

This, Sue, is the joint football stadium of Bayern Munich and Munich 1880 and is probably one of the most unusual structures I've ever seen and had the pleasure to walk around.

The polymer skin that wraps around the steel is possible to see threw and will change color at night to the team colors of the home team playing on any given day. Well worth a visit!

What a fantastic idea, Rob, having the polymer skin change colour. The world we live in looks more like science fiction than science fiction itself at times!

Good to hear from you, take care,

sue
