What is the name of this magnificent structure, and where is it?

Temmu ... it was built as a retirement home for a Shogun.

Here's another view of this magnificent building:

Title: Re: Where in the world?
Post by: Temmu on July 22, 2009, 08:38:00 PM
Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion Temple), Kyoto, Japan

Kinkakuji was built in 1393 as a retirement villa for Shogun Yoshimitsu Ashikaga (1358-1409)
He intended to cover the exterior with gold, but only managed to coat the the ceiling of the third floor with gold leaf before his death.  < - - -  :hysterical:

No.

No reason to get excited
The thief, he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who think that life is but a joke
But you and I, we've been through that
And that is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now
Because the hour is getting late

So, time for a clue. Think about the person who was the Engineer who oversaw the construction of the GWR. Where was he born and where did his drive, passion and inspiration come from?

What was done at this location was later repeated by a Mr. Thomas Blanchard and was the forerunner of a process used by Mr. Henry Ford.

Time to bring this one to a close. The building is the historic Block Mills in Portsmouth Naval Dockyard (http://www.portsmouthdockyard.org.uk/Page%206.htm). This building was the site of the first mass production process where the production of blocks for sailing ships was mechanised with input from Marc Brunel, father of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The processes introduced here were later used in other forms of mechanised production such as at the Springfield Armory.

As I said at the time:

Quote

There is significant difference between Woolwich Dockyard and Portsmouth Dockyard (apart from 70 miles) in that, whilst both had sawmills, there was no block mill at Woolwich - their blocks there were supplied from Chatham. I could not have given you that although you came within a whisker of getting the right location. So, as you were the closest I agree with GR@PH;<'S  - your turn next.

Hi there  :)

We are in France. It is Ferdinand Cheval's lifetime building  Le Palais Idéal (the "Ideal Palace") in Hauterives. Cheval began the building in April 1879. He claimed that he had tripped on a stone and was inspired by its shape. He returned to the same spot the next day and started collecting stones.

For the next 33 years, during his daily mail route, Cheval carried stones from his delivery rounds and at home used them to build his Palais idéal, the Ideal Palace. First he carried the stones in his pockets, then a basket and eventually a wheelbarrow. He often worked at night, by the light of an oil lamp.

Cheval spent the first two decades building the outer walls. The Palace is a mix of different styles with inspirations from the Bible to Hindu mythology. Cheval bound the stones together with lime, mortar and cement.

Ferdinand Cheval lived in Châteauneuf-de-Galaure, in the Drôme département of France. He had left school at the age of 13 to become a baker's apprentice but  became a postman.

Correct!

It makes me think that if every climate change protestor in Copenhagen were to pick up a stone and start building a similar structure, in next to no time you would have.....

.... a big pile of stones!

Where are we going next?

Hi :)
Well, it took me 2 hours to find Le Palais Idéal (the "Ideal Palace"). Sometimes it's good to have Google around :)

I can only say that it is a really bad idea if any climate protestor pick up a single stone in Copenhagen these days. I have seen bad results of that over the last past 3 days and I'll bet, if our politicians don't come up with some  very good results in the end of COP15, there will be a big drama in Copenhagen. I do hope COP15 will end in a good way!
But anyway here is a few videos from the last past days in Copenhagen:

nice one.

"The Struve Arc is a chain of survey triangulations stretching from Hammerfest in Norway to the Black Sea, through 10 countries and over 2,820 km. These are points of a survey, carried out between 1816 and 1855 by the astronomer Friedrich Georg Wilhelm Struve, which represented the first accurate measuring of a long segment of a meridian. This helped to establish the exact size and shape of the planet and marked an important step in the development of earth sciences and topographic mapping."

I would say that we are in Småland, Sweden, in the workshop of the farm owned by the family of Emil Svensson. When young Emil is naughty he gets locked in the workshop by his Father and he carves the wooden figures whilst he is in there. The only problem with this is that Emil is a character in the books of the author Astrid Lindgren so I'm not certain that the workshop actually exists, is there a theme park where Emil is an attraction?

The workshop and the family where the family lived is now a museum/Teampark. The workshop I showed on the photo is from the Astrid Lindgreen Teampark which have address in a town called Vimmerby.

Tallest landmark, yes. Main landmark .... that's debatable. However, we are straying from the point, you are correct and, if you are ever in town, make a point of visiting the church and listen to the organ being played, it'll move you (literally).

Hi,
We are in Portugal. 'The Monument to the Discoveries'  is a monument that celebrates the Portuguese who took part in the Age of Discovery, or the Age of Exploration, of the 15th and 16th centuries. It is located on the estuary of the Tagus river in the Belém parish of Lisbon, Portugal, where ships departed to their often unknown destinations.

The monument consists of a 52 metre-high slab of concrete, carved into the shape of the prow of a ship. The side that faces away from the river features a carved sword stretching the full height of the monument. It was conceived by Portuguese artists, architect Cottinelli Telmo and sculptor Leopoldo de Almeida as a temporary beacon of the Portuguese World Fair in 1940. The Monument to the Discoveries represents a romantic idealisation of the Portuguese past that was typical during the regime of Salazar.

Those 2 golden horns are copies of the originals, but where are they?

These replicas also have a history of having been stolen and retrieved twice, in 1993 and in 2007.

Golden Horns of Gallehus.
The original horns were stolen and melted down in 1802. Unfortunately, casts made of the horns in the late 18th century were also lost. Replicas of the horns must thus rely on 17th and 18th century drawings exclusively and are accordingly fraught with uncertainty. Nevertheless, replicas of the original horns were produced and are exhibited at the National Museum of Denmark, Copenhagen, Denmark and the Moesgaard Museum, near Aarhus, Denmark. These replicas also have a history of having been stolen and retrieved twice, in 1993 and in 2007.

wow, eric the red, that was a very tough one to find:

http://www.mannvit.com/GeothermalEnergy/GeothermalPowerPlants/GeothermalProject-Hellisheidi/

... and i think the answer to your, "why is it so clean" is that it's steam!

i googled images for each of
Reykjavík
Akureyri
Garðabær
Hafnarfjörður
Keflavík
Kópavogur
Reykjanesbær

with no luck at all!

then i tried architecture iceland - and got something that looked like it, but had to google yet more to get the definitive picture in the link above.

ps
in my googling, i could not help but notice:  goodness, there are lots of beautiful women in iceland!

Temmu,

Well done, I thought that I was being a bit cryptic but you saw through me. Another good link for this project is the following:

That is so true .... mind that you are not dazzled by that beauty (a phenomenon which normally manifests itself in being the owner of a Viking pattern jumper that you can't remember purchasing; the other route to pullover possession involves Brennivin and a tell-tale headache!).

Where to next?

Instead of architecture, let's try natural formations?
This Towering granite so mighty and solid, is graced by Heather and Pear.
It resides in a park, and it may be a lark, for you to find out where...  Watch your step!

Correct, R3D!

"During the dry season, when the Zambezi River is at its lowest, a natural rock ledge at the very lip of Victoria Falls creates the world's highest and most dangerous infinity pool. Adventuresome swimmers can wade through the enclosed patch of water known as the "Devil's Swimming Pool" to the precipice of the 100-meter falls and look down upon the gorge below."

Now where?
