Mexico, although lacking in many things–and I say that as a national–is certainly not falling short one bit in architectural prowess. Mexican architects are consistently pumping out great designs, like the Soumaya Museum in Mexico City, a truly stunning work!
[In this Google Earth image from 2008, you can see them building the temporary connector on the bottom](http://i.imgur.com/6QHpxOh.jpg) The original alignment is the one the cars are driving on there, they haven’t built the other bridge jet, just started the foundations. EDIT: Who would
To tell you the truth, I’m pretty new to photography, and especially to post-processing photography, so not sure exactly what you mean. With the white balance “As shot” in Lightroom, the room seemed duller than it was in real life, so I went with
It’s actually primarily for predators. Deer and such don’t typically have a lot of need to move around a whole particular lot, and don’t need a large amount of space. If they feel safe and have some plants to eat they are generally good.
Actually their economy is mostly tourism and real-estate. Their oil has dried up already. Also, it’s a tax-free haven for corporations. I think your comment is getting upvoted for one of two reasons, or both: 1. People have not kept up-to-date on Dubai. It’s
Well, technically it isn’t underground. It’s built above ground, but there are so many elevated roadways and tall buildings around that it looks like it goes underground by comparison. You can see the side of it underneath the elevated people mover and above the
Well it’s also possible that mismatched bridges would be unsightly, which could lead to decreased property values and an overall diminished opinion of the area. This could be especially important given this bridge’s proximity to Niagara Falls.

I really love it actually. It’s so brutal it’s actually quite beautiful. Don’t know how else to put it.

I know it is going to have an almost 40 meter mirror. I am not really familiar with the project but I do believe it is meant to be similar type of location as Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa but it is a fair
The “toll” is about $2 and covers road maintenance. It was instituted about 10 years ago because many residents would cut through the airport as part of their commutes, causing wear and tear on the roadways there. Highway exits. Are you referring to the
It *was* a movement. It was the entire ethos of the post-war era: clear out the old, the decay, the opulence, the excess; replace with the new, the bright, the sleek, and the clean! People tend to confuse “drab concrete office building” with “brutalist

This is not the first post of this building but the first (I’ve seen) that mentions the architect. Guðjón Samúelsson was the state architect of Iceland and almost every building built between 1920 and 1940 were designed by him. They are beautiful and I

I love the downtown library. I remember seeing it when I first started working a block away shortly after moving to the city and falling in love with the building. A week later I was trying to find my way to the library and
I’m blown away by how much soil (2-3 meters?) accumulated on that road in just 2,000 years. Is this stretch on a flood plain or is that just wind sediment? Here’s a nice summary of Tarsus that I stumbled across while trying to figure
Mostly correct, but the buildings on the waterline are actually still active, its the [“Water Works Restaurant”](http://www.thewaterworksrestaurant.com/) and is a popular location for events. The space beneath the restaurant is no longer active and actually holds an abandoned olympic sized swimming pool among other
You’re welcome. Sometimes the bridge is closed for light vehicles (unloaded trucks and caravans), due to heavy wind. [In 2005 it was closed 98 hours.](http://www.trm.dk/~/media/Files/Publication/English/windstudyfinaljuni.pdf)
Love the simplicity of just the 2 (for lack of a better term) circles. SO much more efficient than we see here in the northeast where they use much smaller diameter ones (4 actually) and when you’re travelling on the interstate, you have to
I don’t claim to have any real knowledge on the subject, but I would say the advantage would be you take a much smaller footprint of land. Realistically they could not stack containers anywhere close to as high as that building, so they would

Lived here my freshman year, mostly because of how great of a building it is. If you ever visit, i’d advise not going in…the interior past the first floor doesn’t quite live up to the exterior.
I have seen this lighthouse in this condition. Very awesome. there are just piles and piles of ice chunks (house sized) piled up on the beach too. Best day of hookey I ever played.
