What a strange building! It seemingly has some rooms at the ground floor, but, those stairs lead to …. nothing.

I’m thinking of starting a competition for the sake of identifying its purpose. I pass by the mystery twice a day and every time my curiosity rise. Is it a statue? Does it have an industrial or functional purpose? Is it a sign of the corruption?

I’ve asked the “what-is-that” questions to more than 20 fine engineers and none have given an answer. Not even a suggestion.

I don’t know why, but I’m always reminded of M. C. Escher’s Relativity whenever I look at it. Oh my God!! Could it really be that? An attempt to model the masterpiece? After all, similar attempts have been carried out before.

So, if you think you know what that building does, please, spare time to put a bunch of wonderers out of their misery.

On a different note: There are some good images of plain awkwardness at Only-In-Egypt. I like the About post.
