WhereArtI 049

Posted on Jan 28, 2013

WAI49A slightly different style today, I did the complete sketch with my Letraset permanent twin tip marker pens. I think it gives it a mysterious soft edge touch. Perfect for this weeks WhereArtI quiz. Do you recognise this building?

 

Remember to include the hashtag #wherearti with your answers either below, on facebook or twitter and also to keep an eye on the ES facebook page and twitter for clues throughout the day.

 

Answers to come by this time tomorrow, and although for now the quiz is just for fun the first three correct answers will get a mention plus a link from my site for anyone who makes it onto the WhereArtI leaderboard.

    Thanks to the people at Edinburgh Zoo for giving us a little more information about the building above:

    ‘I believe it was originally opened in 1927 as the Carnegie Aquarium , however after many years, part of the aquarium was demolished in 1987 for refurbishment before re-opening as the Orientation Centre, with a new gate and shop complex in 1988 by The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh as part of our 75th anniversary, although this did not open to the public until 1989.

    To this day the building still exists and is used as our main entrance and gift shop with offices above.’

    You won’t find this building on Google street view, its hiding behind a row of trees. It was a tricky one but after my clue of ‘this building is celebrating its 100th year’ a lot of you got the answer straight away.

    But even before the give-away clue a few of you did tell me that the sketch above was Edinburgh Zoo. The view is a side entrance of the entrance building, previously the main entrance to the zoo.

    So well done to this weeks top three, all winning points for that all important WhereArtI leader board. 1st: @CityCentreBandB, 2nd: @0apropos, 3rd: @MrInch. See you all next Monday 🙂
