I guess a hint is in order. Look to the stars for help.

It looks like part of a power generator from Empire Strikes Back.

That's part of the Alexandria Library, isn't it? Bibliotheca Alexandrina. I had to really Google it to find it, and it's a rare picture. Gorgeous building. Post something else. I have to go take a shower and go to work.

The planetarium portion of it, to be exact. Alexandria, Egypt.

What's the name of this stadium (actually, the name of the *field*) and where is it?

Bonus points if you can tell me why it is shaped the way it is.

OK, is that the Atlanta stadium? and I came up with Andrew Gunner? I think I may be wrong though. The Anaheim stadium looked close to this too.

It's the Atlanta stadium. What is it called? Why is it shaped that way?
