This is indeed an interesting structure and I would really like to know what it is representing.

From the photographic point of view, the subject is centered and this gives the photo a platonic perspective. Also the timing wasn't perfect as there is no action, no drama in the cloudy sky. These things I consider you could have changed at the moment you took the photo.

What you could do to improve this photo now, is to crop a little, maybe take a portrait style photo, and increase the contrast and give a little color to it.

Hope it is helpful,

Great capture, not perfect light or sky.
If you can you must return and shoot aplenty. There is a great picture awaiting

Adequate record but the lighting and buildings do not make for a good composition. Next time you need to stop and get in close with a wide angle. There are some cracking images in there.

I've done a very crude mod

I've uploaded a mod. in which I've simply cropped it to a portrait (8x10) and applied a white and a black threshold using curves.
Because of the symmetry, the subject needs, I think, to be in the centre.
I've also straightened it.
It's a shame the sky and/or weather wasn't on your side that day.

Stop the next time. This is decent quality from a moving car, with poor weather.

Added a mod also.

I can really imagine this structure against a beautiful blue sky with some nice fluffy clouds - next time ( a must) but please make the ground level in processing if you can't quite manage it in camera. alternatively, with something like a 10-20 lens get right underneath it and see what possibilities lie in waiting for you.
