Located in Tbilisi, Georgia, this is the former Tbilisi Institute of Technology, erected in 1976.
The facade features the character of Icarus represented with what many described as "a singular resemblance to Batman." For this reason, locals call it The Batman
During the process of de-sovietization, symbols of the sickle and hammer were removed from the wings. There is little information about the building as it is not possible to trace the name of the architect and artist who created the project.
Looks like an 8, 5, 4, 1, 2 and a 6.
What are those numbers?
Given the nut and the spring there I'm guessing he's supposed to be busting out of the face of a clock. So those would be the numbers for telling time that got knocked loose and piled up at the bottom.
This is a residential building in Tbilisi, Georgia
It looks like something out of Silent Hill.
If y'all like this kind of thing, I have a whole album of post-Soviet Central Asia that's just this style.
Edit: I'm lazy and it's Saturday night but I'll find the best pics I have and upload em tomorrow.
Looks like it goes into the other building...
And a terrible title.
That's a fantastic photograph.
Faded blues and oranges look so great together. Cool pic, very eerie.
Looks like a battlefield 4 loading screen.

Lego The Last Of Us is looking pretty promising...
Seriously, his art is incredible. We could be posting his pictures here all day
That's very lego Jurassic Park
The Abraj Al-Bait is a government-owned megatall complex of seven skyscraper hotels in . These towers are a part of the King Abdulaziz Endowment Project that strives to modernize the city in catering to its pilgrims. The central hotel tower, the Makkah Royal Clock Tower, also A Fairmont Hotel, has the world's largest clock face and is the third tallest building in the world.
The building complex is metres away from the world's largest mosque and Islam's most sacred site, the Masjid al-Haram. The developer and contractor of the complex is the Saudi Binladin Group, the Kingdom's largest construction company. The complex was built after the demolition of the Ajyad Fortress, the 18th-century Ottoman citadel which stood atop a hill overlooking the Grand Mosque. The destruction of the fort in 2002 by the Saudi government sparked Turkish and international outcry. It is the world's most expensive building with the total cost of construction equaling 15 billion dollars!
Here's an album with some great pictures
That building is so fucking large it's ridiculous. I know the Burj Khalifa is larger, but it's proportions don't make it seem so, as it slims upwards. This is just this massive, wide tower, it's crazy. It really is the first building that has looked truly massive to me.
Also, sheesh. The terrain of Mecca looks desolate. That dark grey-brown rock with not a piece of foliage or water anywhere makes it look like it's on the Moon...
Edit: Grammar and clarification.
Is that a person hanging on at the very top of the building? On the left side of that piece on top.
What a tacky piece of shit
In Nuremberg, there's a Burger King in a former Nazi transformator building:
Take that, evil McDonald's!
I know how much you fuckers love some evil McDonald's; this one is in Bray, Ireland
🎶 ba da ba ba ba 🎶
yes yes! /sub/hailcorporate ✋
That's a beautiful Mcdonalds, never thought id say that.
you'd think they could have done a better job getting rid of der Eagle there. The Germans (for better and worse) are pretty effective when they put their minds to it.

This picture is [not] illegal
Aren't nighttime pictures of the Eiffel Tower Illegal?
I was there a few weeks ago, funny part is there is a bar in the tower that serves still or sparkling water only
I'll take my tap water shaken...not stirred...
That building was originally built for the eye of sauron
It's obviously so planes pass through it
The Huntington Beach Oil Field is part of rich pools of oil found along the West Coast of the United States in the early 1920s stretching from Huntington Beach, California to Santa Barbara, California.
On May 24, 1920, the first Huntington Beach well was brought in as a producing well. By October 1921, the field had 59 producing wells.
The conflict of coastal oil drilling with beachfront recreation and tourism has been a central theme in Southern California politics.
You sent me on a mission to find how they are decorated or disguised
Still there, and all along the coast they have hidden facades that you would never know was a drilling operation next to someone's million dollar house.
Still in operation? That's really cool from a logistics standpoint.
The “gaming router” marketing gone too far.
Faisal Mosque in Islamabad, Pakistan
Construction of the mosque began in 1976 after a $120 million grant from Saudi King Faisal, whose name the mosque bears.
The design features eight-sided shell shaped sloping roofs forming a triangular worship hall which can hold 100,000 worshippers, while the surrounding porticoes and the courtyard up-to 200,000 more.
Here's a few more pictures of this place
MEANWHILE AT THE LEGION OF DOOM!
Truly a beautiful mosque, having visited it 7 years ago. Here are additional images (not my photos).
