When I was photographing the flooding the other day I took this one. These buildings house the equipment which lift the flood gates on the hydro-electric plant on the River Isar at Landshut. I´m sure they have a technical name, but I´ve no idea what it is. The form of these buildings is fascinating, they remind me of one of those 1930´s Art Deco cinemas.

By the way, the river levels have dropped quite a lot here now, but down stream there is still a lot of flooding.
