Katowice - Spodek

Spodek is a multipurpose arena complex in Katowice, Poland, opened in 1971 in Korfantego street. Aside from the main dome, the complex includes a gym, an ice rink, a hotel and three large car parks. It is the largest indoor venue of its kind in Poland. It hosts many important cultural and business events. Music concerts are especially common non-sport events. Spodek can hold 11,500 people, although this number is in practice limited to 10,000 or even 8,000, due to stage set-ups obscuring the view. Its name means "saucer" in Polish, because it resembles a tilted flying saucer. Spodek is a major contribution to the cultural significance of Katowice in Poland, especially for the younger generations. It has played host to many up-and-coming bands, such as a performance by Pantera for the Metalmania festival and Chumbawumba in 1997 as well as dozens of world famous bands including Boney M., Deep Purple, Depeche Mode, Elton John, Genesis, Eric Clapton, Gary Moore, Green Day, Iron Maiden, Jean-Michel Jarre, Jamiroquai, Jethro Tull, Metallica, Pearl Jam, Rammstein, Robbie Williams, Slipknot, Sting, The Prodigy, Tina Turner, U2.

London, England

Tower Bridge, London

Built in 1894, Tower Bridge is one of the most recognisable structures in London. Standing 65m above its platforms it is the tallest bridge going across the Thames. When first built, steam engines would pump to drive the 1000 ton bascules up to full height in less than a minute. Today they are powered electrically. In 1952 a red London bus jumped a 3ft gap between the bascules after a traffic light was stuck on go. A number of pilots have attempted to fly under Tower Bridge with at least one hitting the Thames and dying. The space between it is only 65m x 30m.

Walt Whitman Bridge

The steel suspension bridge spanning the Delaware river was constructed between 1953-1957. It is designed by master builder Othmar Ammann and Herb Rothman. The main span is 609 meters long and 45 meters over the river surface. The deck is held up by two suspension cables that consist of 18,666 individual wires, each. The deck has three road lanes to each direction and a seventh one that can be converted to either direction depending on demand. The total steelwork weighs some 57,674 tons and 36,500 tons of it is suspended from the cables.

New York, New York

17, State Street

17 State Street is a 42-story building in the Financial District of Manhattan. Completed in 1988, the building rises to 542 ft (165 m). It was designed by Emery Roth and Sons, and it is most noted for its distinct curved facade. The bottom floors of the skyscraper are home to New York Unearthed, an urban archaeology museum with approximately two million artifacts from local excavation sites. The museum was originally included as a concession to the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission, who had been unable to perform an archaeological survey of the site before construction began.
