Aliianz Arena in Munich, Germany. There's also a replica made of Lego blocks. If I didn't get the Lego part right, two of our sons would have never spoken to me again.

(Ain't Google great?)

Thanks, cara, that was a neat one. Katie’s the one who identified it. I just stood by and watched.
Keeping with the theme of buildings, here’s one to ponder.
This house was built during the years 1902-1905.
It’s located in the Northeast United States (near, but not in a place called New England, which is a group of six states…but I digress).
The man who built it created something that has affected the lives of each and every one of us.
Who built it and where is it?
Good luck.
Buck

The company this man created had a slogan. It was:

"You push the button, we do the rest."
