Is it an actual real live baby? Relevant its age, sex, what it's wearing, other characteristics? Is it in a pram, directly on the floor, other? Is its mum, dad or other person there? Is it just a picture or model of a baby? Is it relevant what kind of building it is, in terms of construction, size, location or use?

So is this a literal, real public building in the normal sense of the word? Or is it a playhouse? Something inside another building or in a garden or playground? Is there some kind of test going on? Are photographs relevant? Is it a swimming pool? Does the building have an unusual use? In theory, could the building be used for something else?
