Very cool Andrew -- reminds me of a MC Escher-like optical illusion.

Thanks very much for that Bruce.

The whole building in fact seems like MC Escher would have had a field day just walking around there.

I wonder how much of a subliminal (or otherwise) influence he might have on modern architecture in general?

Well done Andrew! It's a lot more gentle than Escher, and you're not likely to get nightmares looking at this :-)

Thanks also for your visit by the way.

Thanks for that Paul.

I might one day post the original "de-Eschered" version - just for a laugh.
