I love that my friend Patty T. was on another continent, touring her husband’s “ancestral home,” when she heard that this is the largest building in the world covered in delft tile. She thought of me and this blog, and took this photo for our enjoyment! She’s just SWELL!
So today is an ultra-obscure “Where is it? Wednesday!” Anyone know where this building is located? And perhaps, the name of it?
If YOU have a photo of a BIG attraction – anywhere in the world – that you would like to contribute for “Where is it? Wednesday,” please contact me at Traci [at] GoBIGorGoHomeBlog [dot] com. I ♥ shared photos!
ANSWER: This building is called the Stadshaard. It’s located in Enschede, the Netherlands, and serves as a gateway building for the district of Roombeek. And — get this – it’s a power station! Amazingly attractive for a public utility building. More information and photos — with detailed looks at the tiles — can be found here.
