Vienna International Centre, UN HQ in Austria

Leased to the United Nations for 99 years at a rate of 1 Austrian shilling (about 7 cents, apparently), this is one of the four headquarters of the UN (the other three being in Nairobi, New York, and Geneva). Very retro-futuristic, especially in the post-apocalyptic fog prevailing the morning we were there.
