Where in the World (242)
Towers in cities can define the city. In puzzles like this it is sometimes difficult to determine which tower is depicted, especially if the photograph of the city skyline is distorted. In last week’s distorted photograph the tower is identifiable with a little research but an additional clue is the slightly odd shaped, leaning buildings to the right (clockwise direction) of the tower. I know the picture is distorted but it is fairly obvious when comparing with other buildings in the photograph that the buildings are not straight.
Anyway, the Tower is the Rhine Tower and the leaning buildings are the Neuer Zolhof buildings designed by Frank Gehry, architect of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. Both are in the Media Harbour in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The post this week was pre-scheduled as I am away and only have limited access to wifi. However, I will post the list of readers who correctly identified the city in a future post on my return
There is a tall structure in this week’s distorted city photograph but it is not a tower; it is a statue. Identify the statue and you will limit your choice of possible cities considerably. There are some other clues but you will need to look closely.
