      There's one in Los Angeles too. Maybe it's an Ernst & Young thing. The doors don't match LA's unless they've changed them since the pic was taken.

      • AmBush_Steve

        Thanks. I was wondering if that's where it was. Been there but didn't see that anywhere. Wondered how I could have missed something like that.

      • Matty Rochelle

        Yep, Amsterdam baby!! amazing city…

    • Hmm

      What? It's just a giant bowling pin with two small bowling balls. I really don't see what's wrong with it.

      Houseball by Claes Oldenberg (the same guy who brought us that giant clothespin)

      Bethlehemkirch-Platz, Mauerstrasse, Berlin

      Stainless steel, fiber-reinforced plastic, jute netting, polyurethane and polyvinyl chloride foams; painted with polyester gelcoat 27 ft. 6 in. (8.4 m) high x 24 ft. 4 in. (7.4 m) diameter

      The original Houseball, made for the performance Il Corso del Coltello, was based on the idea that one could gather all one's possessions in a large cloth and tie them up in the form of a ball that would roll — thereby making any other transportation unnecessary — to its next destination. The house was left behind; its contents became a house in itself. In Il Corso del Coltello, the Houseball, second only to the Knife Ship as a thematic object, was made up of the possessions of Georgia Sandbag, a character played by Coosje, and it accompanied her on a journey across the Alps. Later, Coosje came to see the Houseball as a symbol of displaced populations, the ordeal of refugees, and in 1993 she proposed a larger, permanent version of the sculpture for a site in Berlin, near what had been Checkpoint Charlie, the gate of entry in the Berlin Wall. The site was a traffic island, visible from all sides, in the midst of a new business complex. The Houseball was approved, but shortly after fabrication of the piece began, the site was returned to members of a family dispossessed during World War II who planned to put a building on it. Quite characteristically, the Houseball was again on the move.

      The first appearance of the sculpture was in Bonn, in front of the Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik, Deutschland, to which it journeyed by boat from a factory near San Francisco through the Panama Canal and up the Rhine River. The following year the sculpture was shipped — suspended by a 300-foot-long cable attached to a Russian helicopter — from Rostock on the Baltic Sea, and lowered onto a permanent site in Berlin not far from the original location, on the Bethlehemkirch-Platz, in front of a building by Philip Johnson.

      I still don't get it….
