Imperial flushes? We’ve seen lots of Star Wars themed theatres, but a bathroom? While maybe not technically based on a Star Destroyer – even George Lucas can’t trademark triangles – it sure brings the spaceship to mind.
Darth Vader on a religious institution? No, the Sith haven’t received tax-exempt status yet, but thanks to an 80′s children’s art competition a carving of the character’s iconic mask has a birds-eye view of Washington D.C. from the Washington National Cathedral.
Were the Jedi Archives in Attack of the Clones based on the Long Room Library at Trinity College of Dublin? The pics are certainly persuasive, and the resemblance was enough that the college was considering legal action back in 2002. Other than some law blogs, I can only find one reference to the matter… The library’s website is mum.
