No. I do not recognize, but it is obviously some sort of lookout tower, or observation platform, not built by native Americans, but by imported Americans, I suspect.

It looks like someone had a scaffolding nightmare, and built based on the night horse.

so you are saying the dark areas to the right are the gun ports? Heck I thought the thing was facing the other way (toward the hillside).

Maybe it is the judge's stand at the Widowmaker Bike Run north of Provo, Utah.

If the windows don't open fast enough just blast your way through them.

In a pinch the scaffold can be taken down and use it as a deer stand somewhere else.

Who puts a five-holer up on stilts, and with no pit underneath it? At least it would be the top story of a two story sheite house, but not even a sheite house rat would use that for a privy.

This week’s building is the Allmannajuvet Zinc Mine Museum, designed by Peter Zumthor. Built in 2016, the simplistic buildings are inspired by the old mining operation located at the Sauda, Norway site. The structures are meant to convey “the drudgery” that would have existed in “the workers’ strenuous everyday lives.” The buildings were prefabricated, then assembled in Allmannajuvet. As noted on ArchDaily, the “exterior walls of the building consists of creosote impregnated laminated wood,” while the exterior walls “consist of 18 mm plywood sheets and jute burlap coated with a German acrylic material.”

Sounds like drudgery to me, and I have not even gone to Norway.

In the meantime back on the Ranch, it is back to work in the salt mine since break time is over. Yes we do stand on our heads in poo here in Texas (hello on earth) whilst working. Actually, conditions have been nice here the last several days. Think the Big Guy, probably mentioned a penalty clause to his fallen angel.

Yes it's suitably depressing....maybe the designer could move on to prison design now....and who knows, maybe one day public housing....It's so wonderful to find one's niche in life...

Homeless shelters I have seen appear better than that.
