Title: Identify this Building Game?
Post by: catty on July 22, 2013, 08:06:40 PM
Starting a new game in the subscribers board called "Identify this Building Game" the rules are simple

1. Pick a building that already exists or is in the process of being built
2. Pick some identifying characteristics - you can include the location if you want.
3. Hope someone can guess the building based on your clues and post the name and location, etc.
4. If no guesses, or guesses are incorrect, more clues can be given or the answer give and a new game started.

I'll start us off with a easy one



I've got 202 upper levels, 6 underground and 90 lifts, I will have apartments, schools, shopping malls, theatres, cinemas, hospital and a vertical farm and will house 30,000 plus people when finished.

They say it'll take only 90 days to build the tallest building in the world... They're crazy.

Ok, let's go with an easy one.

I am a monolith planted at the heart of a classic city. I've received a lot of protest when I was built. Originally the area around should have got other skyscrapers, but it got canceled because the surrounding inhabitants were angry. I've also been built at the place of an old train station. I am the _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _     _ _ _ _ _.


Oh btw, we can post other things than skyscraper?

any building you want ... its probably going to need a unique feature or location, etc otherwise no-one is ever going to guess it, but otherwise anything goes

Okay, let's keep it easy.

Also built on top of an old train station, also amidst outcry from the public. But not in a "classic" city, and there are skyscrapers around.

That's quite a nice building. :)

Let's see....

Good thing I've got the wikipedia entry still open!  :D Rolf Disch has also designed the Heliotrope building. Still a bit confused though over the correct German name.

EDIT; Das Sonnenschiff

Double edit, Arthur beat me to it.  :D

The Sun Ship has more than one Wikipedia entry

under the english name   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Ship_%28building%29

under the german name   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonnenschiff

and the Heliotrope for those people who wondered what it looked like

Right, do I get to go now?  ::)

If so, my construction took from ca. 1200 to 1600 in which I've survived two fires and have incorporated 3 distinct architectural styles. During my latest renovation I got a brand new statue of an angel holding a mobile phone with just one button (to call God). I'm _ _  _ _ _ _ _  _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
