Wall Wednesday – Week Eight

For new readers, every Wednesday I post a photo or photos of an interesting wall or walls I have come across, it/they may be local (Scottish Borders) or in a far flung location.  The photos may be may be recent or from my back catalogue – it’s my way of sharing my pics in an organised way.  I’m not going to tell you what/where today’s “walls” are until the end – they are all views of the interior and exterior of the same building – where/what do you think the building might be?

OK, did any of you guess it is a car factory? It’s the VW Phaeton plant in Dresden, Germany – it’s made of glass and translates as “the transparent factory”.  We visited there in 2009 while on a week’s holiday in Dresden, it was truly fascinating (free tour but pre-booking essential)  The factory is in the middle of a big park in the middle of the City – the parts arrive by tram and the cars are assembled on a moving wooden floor.  I know it looks like an art gallery or a concert hall – and in fact they use it for that too.  There were loads of amazing buildings in Dresden – it wasn’t all bombed to bits – so I’ll share more soon!
