201103-b-guess-22jpg

This geometric structure was built for a World Expo. Do you know where this is?

Log in and leave your guesses below and be sure to check back on Monday for the correct answer.

UPDATE 4/18/11: T+L community members AAO, silviasantoyo, and MarcoNorth all guessed correctly—this is a photo of the Oriente Station in Lisbon, Portugal.  Architect Santiago Calatrava designed this structure, which houses a train station, a subway station, and a bus terminal, to accommodate the influx of visitors to the city during the 1998 World Expo. It is located in the Parque das Nações, the site of the Expo.

Denver Deals via Text

201104-b-denverjpg

By now, most cities in the States have developed a mobile app or two to help visitors navigate via their smart phone or iPad. But Visit Denver, the official CVB of the Mile High City, has something even cooler up their sleeve. While many web-savvy travelers are familiar with online deal sites, like Groupon, Visit Denver developed the “Denver Deals” program to deliver deals from area businesses via text message.

While I’m glued to my desk in New York for the moment, I tested out this new program—the first of its kind—to see what they had to offer.

I texted “Denver Deals” to 63638 and within a few seconds my inbox had two new messages:

Wandering around Europe a few years ago, I happened upon this turquoise building with what may be the world's most imaginative gutter system. Can you guess where this whimsical apartment building is?

Guess Where? Tunnel of Books

201103-b-guess-15jpg


This tunnel of books, created by an artist who used mirrors to give the illusion of infinity, can be found in a library somewhere in Europe. Can you guess who the artist is and where this is?

Hint: Science magazine previously featured this sculpture on its cover.

Log in and leave your guesses below and be sure to check back on Monday for the correct answer.

UPDATE 3/28/11: Looks like we finally stumped you guys. Slovak artist, Matej Krén, created this book sculpture, called Idiom, which can be found in the entrance of the Prague Municipal Library at Mariánské náměstí, near the Old Town Square. It's centrally located, near the Staromestska metro station, so you don't have to go out of your way to check this mind-boggling sculpture out. Though nobody guessed the location, T+L community member miguelcarvalho did guess the artist correctly. Check out more images of this sculpture here.

201103-b-guess-5jpg


Work began on this European cathedral in the 14th century, yet its unique spires—characterized by a variety of architectural styles, including Neoclassical, Gothic Revival, and Art Nouveau—weren't completed until the 19th century. Can you guess where this is?

UPDATE 3/21/11: T+L community members sholverson, aldaformenti and MoniquePellerin all guessed it right! This is indeed the Duomo di Milano, or the Milan Cathedral, in northern Italy.
