Atop a massive building in Utrecht, a giant replica UFO is lodged into the former head office of the Dutch Railways.

This odd architectural feature was intended as part of an exhibition in 2000. “Panorama 2000” was designed to showcase art exhibits across the city that could only be seen from a distance. The giant disk is the last remaining installation still standing from the event, giving the building an eerie vibe. Unfortunately, the Inktpot is not open to visitors, but curious travelers can walk in the park surrounding the building to get a closer look.
