One building has bee causing quite a commotion, for looking like a couple having sex. Literally.

The building, named Domestikator, is part of the ‘The Good, The Bad And The Ugly’ series, held at the Ruhrtriennale Festival in Bochum, Germany.

It was created by firm Atelier Van Lieshout, and aimed to show the power of humanity over the general world – but some people have slammed the creation for being little more than ‘architecture porn’.

Twitter users were obviously keen to post pictures of what they had seen, and it quickly took the internet by storm.

The building is set to be on display at the festival in both 2016 and 2017, as well as being on display this year until September 25th.

Rookje Meijerink of Atelier Van Lieshout claimed:

The artwork pays tribute to the ingenuity, the sophistication and the capacities of humankind, to the power of organisation, and to the use of this power to dominate, domesticate the natural environment.

The response by both professionals, press and the general public has been very positive, the installation has featured in a large number of renowned Dutch and German newspapers, magazines and television stations, and has gathered a lot of attention online.

If you say so.
