Photographer's Note

Unusual architecture in Nagoya, Japan. I've cloned out an intrusive street lamp at left.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mode_Gakuen_Spiral_Towers

"Mode Gakuen Spiral Towers (モード学園スパイラルタワーズ Mōdo gakuen supairaru tawāzu?) is a 170-metre (558 ft), 36-story educational facility located Nakamura-ku, Nagoya, Aichi, Japan. The building is home to three vocational schools: Nagoya Mode Gakuen, HAL Nagoya and Nagoya Isen." Now I know what the 'MODE', 'HAL', 'ISEN', that appear vertically on the building mean.

'Gakuen' is Japanese for 'Academy'. Taken February last year on an overcast day. There is a trombone type sculpture in front of the building.
