After a rather slow period the Flickr Plečnik group is seeing plenty of submissions. The picture is by klausness and shows Zacherl-Haus in Vienna (1903-1905).

A circular church with a circular tower that is now leaning slightly as can be seen in the gap between it and the neighbouring block.

Monolithic columns in the porch have capitals unlike any I have ever seen, what are they? Due to the crowded site this building is very hard to photograph.
