The 2nd coordinate which lies in highly defensive water sign Scorpio is represented by the closed up helmet like round building with no windows. This fulfills the fortress reflex and helmet intention in Scorpio and the wish for protecting the head, keeping the light away and creating a space for mental visualization and even the chance for a closed up ideology, dogma or simply interior space.

A typical example for that is the Beijing Opera House.
