Buildings that look like Starships

Please only post fotos of buildings that actually could go as landed starships in Sci-fi movies or series. Not buildings that look "spacy" in their design!
Skyscrapers that look like rockets are not allowed.... as nearely all of em could go as such And it should be a largely free standing structure!


Two examples:


The "Starliner"

Airrail Center/The Squaire, Frankfurt, Germany

I think one of the most obvious choices is the building Palacio de las Artes Reina Sofía in Valencia, Spain.

The Evoluon in Eindhoven, built in 1964-1966!
This was the former technology of the future museum of Philips.



Even the interior is pretty spacy :P
