Where in the World (219)

The tower in last week’s distorted photograph was both a vital clue in the identity of the city and a misleading clue. Some of the suggestions made were Kuwait City, Almaty and Toronto. Other possibilities were Taipei, Seattle and Auckland. It was necessary  to couple the tower with clues elsewhere in the distorted photograph to correctly identify the city.

Most of the winners recognised that the overall picture was one of the many Olympic parks that have sprung up in major cities that hosted The Games in recent decades. This is where the tower helps as it identifies it as a photograph of the Olympic Park, Munich.

This week’s distorted photograph will present a little more of a challenge as the building is not immediately recognisable unless you have been there. There are however clues to the country and the type of building it is. A little research should then enable you to identify the city.


You can leave your answers in the comments below or on my Twitter feed (@lethers) with the hashtag #WITW219. If you are on Twitter then you can Direct Message me with the answer which will be hidden from the Twittersphere. Alternatively email me with the answer using the contact page – see tab on menu bar above.

Do remember it is the city that needs to be identified. I am getting answers that tell me what the building or structure is but the name of the city is absent.

Please use the hashtag #WITW219. It makes finding the answers in a continually changing Twitter feed so much easier; your answer is less likely to be overlooked. Good luck.
