Star of David Building

The Hesder Yeshiva in the Jewish settlement 
Neve Dekalim (top left)

I know of two buildings in the Shape of a Star of David:
 1.  The Hesder Yeshiva in the Jewish settlement Neve Dekalim. This building was designed by Architect Gershon Shevach.  Neve Dekalim was evacuated on 19 August 2005. See photos on:
2. "In Macedonia, a man plans to build a Holocaust museum… a white, Star of David-shaped building on three floors. The ground floor would house a museum to show Jewish life through history. The second floor would feature an education center and the third a research center".
 If you know of more buildings in the shape of a Star of David please let me know.

I like reading asking and answering questions on Yahoo Answers – it is a human search engine and it is much more entertaining than learning from a machine. There are right now 115 results for the search words "Star of David" but only few of them are worth reading. Here are some of them:

1. Why is the Star of David the Jewish symbol???

2. What are the origins of David star?

3. What is the Star of David? What does it represent? Is it a Jewish or Christian symbol?

4. What is a brief description of the Star of David but in historical way?

5. Why did Hitler make the Jews put the Star of David during the war?

7. Why Israel chose this star as a symbol?
