Thanks for your comment at Sydney Daily Photo I’m not near my computer at the moment (have a visit to see where I am!), so sorry for not commenting earlier.

I think our PHOTOGRAPHER is outside the building....What's the purpose of the building?

Mahalo for your visits!

I don't know if this is part of the daily theme or not, but the lines of this building are quite beautiful.

The spiral staircase is in the inside. A car and the photographer are on the outside. Am I right?

this is fantastic. Portugese architect? Kind of a cubist Frank Gehry!

Well, apart from the 'bridge' (and balcony) and the glass cilinder on the left, everything is outside the building: the car, me, the sculpture, the water/fire red thing, even the palmtree shadow on the floor.

Silwy, the building is a congress center.

Kuanyin Moi, this is not part of daily theme, the lines are just a coincidence... :-)

Ken Mac, the engineering company (Quadrante) was in charge of the former building adaptation; I have no idea about the architect but it was not Frank Gehry for sure.

Thank you all for your comments.
