Why is he so close?

Is the building at Oxford, or is the building just in England?

Its spires don't show crosses, so it isn't a church, but the windows are of a style that is associated with stained glass.  The rooms shown are hexagonal, which to me could indicate a baptistry, but that is not the case at all.

So is this building originally an office, a residence, a church, a library, or an academic building?

Hi, Tmp, I believe that is one of the Oxford Union (not student union) buildings.

Simba, I still have to figure out the one you posted in the other thread of the site in Beijing.  I don't feel too bad though since I don't think it's been guessed yet.

Aha, that one...

Some people on this forum are smiling like this:



Hope you are the first one to figure it out.

And the attached pic may give you another hint...

Gee...I have almost disclosed it...
