Car park

 

A Sheffield car park - known as the "cheesegrater" - which apparently won a world-wide competition for the quirkiest car park!

I would never have guessed this to be a car park. Having said that I wouldn't have guessed it to be a cheese grater either..
Tom Wilson: Yes, it's pretty well entirely anonymous!
I would imagine a few builders could be suffering from p.t.s.d. after working on this, Tom smile

It must have been like putting a jigsaw together when they built that.
Tom Wilson: Rather like that!
Quirky is a strange word. In architectural terms it means

A lengthwise groove on a molding between the convex upper part and the soffit.

So perhaps it deserves the title
Tom Wilson: Well, there's a new meaning for me - curious that the meaning does not appear in the Oxford English Dictionary - where did you find it?
I think the name is very appropo.
Tom Wilson: It's certainly very odd.
Makes an interesting shot, would never have guessed what it was
Tom Wilson: It certainly hides function!
That is quirky indeed!
