This is the new guard challenging the established regime.
It's also a gentle, tongue-in-cheek poke at architecture that imagines it has some sort of philosophical charter or mandate to fulfill...all in fun though!

Epic in scale yet never lacking in a sense of fun, Operahaus by ~postapocalypsia is a masterful feat in interpreting surrealistic architecture, and most certainly worth a closer look to truly appreciate what's taking place within. ( Suggested by GaioumonBatou and Featured by snowmask )
:icondune-mafia:
The Year of the Four Emperors, Ad 68-69, saw the rise and fall of Galba, Otho, Vitellius, and Vespasian, in that order. This was chiefly attributed to Nero's suicide; and those who succeeded him were rather weak rulers. They couldn't control the ongoing tumult in the Empire, what with the Jewish revolt and the civil war still raging. To add to the chaos, rebellion broke out in the province of Inferior Germania (present day Holland). Vitellius' position was challenged by the legions of Syria Judea and Egypt. They gathered and marched to Rome and took over the capital, slaying Vitellius. Their commander, Vespasian, was named Emperor, and he established the Flavian dynasty, which although short-lived, achieved good progress and brought stability to the Empire.

Yeah, it's a bit of a stretch I know...but there are a number of small naked folk on bicycles riding up to the entrance. I should post a detail!
