Mystery building

Do you know what the purpose of this building is? I will give you a clue: it is in Thailand, but similar buildings can be found in other parts of SouthEast Asia. Well, that's not much of a clue, so I will give you another one: it's to do with spit.

I think you should prepare by watching a lot of Project Runway.

Sorry! Bitten by auto-fill.

I meant to say: This is a guess, and I'm trying not to be obvious, since I'm in Thailand and thus have an unfair advantage, but: the ultimate product is soup, yes?

It's the biggest cuspidor in the world??? Or perhaps something to do with the manufacture of birds' nest soup ?????

Goodness, my readers are clever folk! I don't think I would have guessed that it is a building designed for swifts to nest in. Their nests, held together with saliva, are harvested to make "birds' nest soup". I think I will stick to mulligatawny.
