Ring around the Rosy, Pocketful of ...

Does anyone else notice an uncanny resemblance between the Apple "Spaceship" Headquarters that has been proposed, and the GCHQ's (i.e. the British NSA's) building in the UK?

Bonus: The dragon-shaped stadium from Kaohsiung, Taiwan that is completely solar-powerd.
