Where in the World (289)

Identifying last week’s distorted city was quite a challenge. My policy is to only provide an additional clue IF no one has come up with the correct answer by lunchtime on Tuesday preceding the Wednesday when the answer is revealed. This has only happened three times previously so is an indication as to how difficult it was. There were answers before Tuesday lunchtime but they incorrectly identified both the building and the city.

I suggested in the clue, released on Twitter, that you head for the Nordic countries. There were several suggestions as to the identity of the building; not all of them correct. However, despite this, the city was identified correctly in most cases. The building featured is the Finlandia Hall designed by Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. As it is the city that has to be identified and not the building those who said Helsinki were correct despite misidentifying the building.

Finlandia Hall, Helsinki

Congratulations to Todd (@toddunctious), Tim (@timofnewbury) and Bev (@bevsackville) who all identified the city correctly… eventually.

This week’s “Where in the World…” is a city skyline with a prominent building in the foreground. As in many of these puzzles identifying the building will help in identifying the city. Less challenging than last week so good luck with this one.

As usual, you can leave your answers in the comments below or on my Twitter feed (@lethers) with the hashtag #WITW289. If you are on Twitter then you can Direct Message me with the answer which will be hidden from. Alternatively, email me with the answer using the contact page – see tab on the menu bar above.

Please use the hashtag #WITW289. It makes finding the answers in a continually changing Twitter feed so much easier; your answer is less likely to be overlooked.
