This is the National Space Centre in Leicester. This tall building which is visible all over the city of Leicester is part of a larger complex and houses a full size rocket, which is visible through the transparent material. I was lucky to catch the vapour trail of a passing plane in the top left of the shot.
A B/W version of this shot is on Treklens.

fascinating take on this building, your POV and composition are inspired and pitched against the sky seems to bring out all the textures and shapes of the structure perfectly. Great vision.

This is a very specially building indeed exactly a rocket.
Sharpness and clarity be superb, together the reflection on the glass wall.
Nice composition, lovely presentation. TFS.

This seems to be a huge and beautiful insect larva, an expression of an artist, very spectacular. The photo is interesting, balanced. The light is simple and enjoyable. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Your picture is simply beautiful. I like the way the cloudy sky seems to repeat the structural lines of the building.

great shot, and the vapour trail you mention is complemented by the cloud formation which seems to curl around the top of the building inviting the rocket, or the whole building to lift off

this is my first time visiting your gallery.
i like what i see...and i should also say, welcome to TE!
at first glance, i thought this was the "Gerkin" in London, but i was mistaken.
love the forms, the shape, and how its transparent.
smartly composed, well executed
have yourself a fine day
