The Alliance sculpture.

By franken
To be found in Cardiff City centre. Sadly, I couldn't get back any further as it would have introduced distractions into the scene so the top is cut off. It continues to a point. The building is Cardiff central library.

It's the creation of Paris artist, Jean-Bernard Metals. It's twenty five metres high and the hoop glows in the dark.

I've added the colour version.

A giant hula-hoop? It nicely frames the ultra-modern building so it sort of reflects it's style of decor?

Two interesting structures, the hoop and the library, and a clear, strong shadow. Clear scale supplied by the pedestrians!
