Extremely cool shot. Something about the expression of the lion(?) echoes the form of the building.

This is my favorite shot of this building --although the building itself seems to have been designed with form emphasized over functionality.

@Twelvebit: Thanks Twelvebit. I think so, it is basically a large empty space inside...
