It is a lighthouse, but It´s not a lighthouse.  This art work stands on the corner of Emmastraat and Academiesingel at Breda (Netherlands) and was made by architect Aldo Rossi (1931-1997) in 1992. Although this is not a lighthouse, I decided to show it, in tribute to the author for choosing this particular design for his work.

Thanks Jaap for the info about this issue.
