There is something about that building and setting that really catches my eye. Some photos of the building: (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-xhi70pfI0U8/TpNQJeULUWI/AAAAAAAANSg/E8BjDgQqY9s/s1600/Fermi%2BNational%2BAccelerator%2BLaboratory.jpg), (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/40/Fermilab_WilsonHall.JPG), (https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5576/14995435541_3049049fb3_n.jpg), (http://news.sciencemag.org/sites/default/files/article_images/si-Fermilab_aerial.jpg) and (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6a/High_Rise_at_Fermilab.jpg).

lol, I had a similar experience. I actually went there for summer vacation the year later and still didn’t learn any more French. Although I took the pimsleur course and now understand A LOT more from tv and movies
Every part of this place is just incredible. I was lucky enough to be able to visit last year. One of the best experiences of my life, without a doubt. If you are even remotely considering travel to the Denver area, please make sure

I like the artistic vision. It is a statement about loss. What has been taken cannot be replaced. Even if it erodes over time it just adds to the symbolism. All the cracks in the granite will reflect the marks left on our souls
This is a great shot, but also captures what I think is one of the building’s biggest flaws: the large gap between the facade and the glass which breaks the illusion of the facade depressing through the curtain wall.
They always get forgotten about, we did a school project about them and I was really surprised that it even happen. Funny thing is we did this project right after the holocaust one. (Israel)
it’s Romanian orthodox, but they’re more or less the same religion (Eastern Orthodox)
There enough to make it an issue for this structure. They had to do a lot of stress test from wind on the structure.
According to wikipedia, this building is actually in [Azerbaijan, and is currently being built.](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SOCAR_Tower). The architects were from S. Korea. Also, computer renderings of buildings almost always look better than the actual building in real life.
Thank you for posting this! I saved this picture a long time ago and never knew the location it was taken. Yet another reason to add Germany to the list of places I want to visit!
It was built for the Exposition Universelle of 1878 and replaced in 1937 by the Chaillot palace. other pics : http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/4f/36._Paris_-_Le_Trocad%C3%A9ro_et_le_Pont_d%27l%C3%A9ma_A.L..jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f6/Eiffel_Tower_and_the_Trocadero%2C_Exposition_Universal%2C_1900%2C_Paris%2C_France.jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f0/Palais_du_Trocadero_Salle.jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b9/Le_Palais_du_Trocad%C3%A9ro,_Exposition_Universelle_1878.jpg
I realize that, but they still appear thin compared to [Toronto’s trains](http://urbantoronto.ca/sites/default/files/imagecache/display-slideshow/images/articles/2011/07/2015/urbantoronto-2015-5780.jpg) I think.
I’m making a note that if I’m ever a millionaire with spending money then I’ll contract with these guys to build me a fine house with this aesthetic. I love all the hard angles, clever lighting and material choices.
The city of Willemsted isn’t a re-creation (even though it’s a stop on the giant cruise ship circuit), the city dates from the early 1600’s…and it’s absolutely lovely. It’s obviously a very Dutch city, architecturally, but as a side note I’d like to mention
It looks like its done in some render software like Artlantis. If that is the case, the people in the image are objects placed in Artlantis. The pro is that these people will be inserted in Artlantis with set measurements so they can be
To me it would be too dangerous to use as hammocks. I thought about protection against wild animals, specially monkeys, but don’t look like it would work due to the gaps on the corners. So I suppose they are protection nets for small kids.
Yeh the design was based on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, actually built by the [same company](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorman_Long). [Bonus photo of them building it](http://imgur.com/7x0lSFb)
I was just having the kleenex conversation with a client the other day, so that’s pretty ironic you mention that. I totally understand what you’re saying, and I don’t think you’re wrong. And yes, it is definitely pretentious. It’s not so much that I
It looks gorgeous, and I get the idea behind the title. So I’m bringing it up as a trivia for those who do not know, not trying to be pedantic: Greek, Roman and medieval styling was flashy as _all the fucks_. http://io9.com/5616498/ultraviolet-light-reveals-how-ancient-greek-statues-really-looked
I had to design one of [these](https://945608f0-a-62cb3a1a-s-sites.googlegroups.com/site/klusbedrijfamersfoort/home/waterpas-timmerman-amersfoort.jpg?attachauth=ANoY7cpFWzE9cIjNP3YUe45MNHnkDF8tCrtNap6dEUZuXa5r0H9dPEKsxlnR9Y4VacD98ex6AHmLdh50tGq6ahAxx7pxlVKSsFJbgRib8XicKSztPgKq–x1yTtH6I7Kf_IsqUt42Kk1V-7I1tjdP11vSVf7wOMgAsPQHVQcQ4jiL5ylVYd2gvWp3HG28fOnjFZcy4XzWoHYyI-ZThuNDuTkeAZRK-886NGGXAr28DOJbLsK-REV5b9o0qj_UgRA6SDah6HS-5p4&attredirects=0) in the style of an architect, I chose Toyo Ito and this building was one of the major inspirations. I’ll try to find the solid-works drawing I made, it was a long time ago and I dropped
That is pretty frigging cool, especially in a place like Singapore that’s tight for space. I wonder how much of a wind it could handle though. Edit: I found [this interesting article](http://www.ctbuh.org/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=h7zopZwN9WU%3d&tabid=1090&language=en-GB) about the building, but it doesn’t answer my question.
Of they’re any kind of historical subjects (history, law, economics…) then people may be reading them forever. And there’s a lot of them. Then there’s original literature, philosophy, history of art, fine art, original scientific works… There’s actually a lot of stuff. Sure, everyone
Don’t worry, it’s still used for worship. http://www.enicholl.com/bolton-priory-church/ ~~But also as has been said, it was Henry VIII’s separation from the Catholic Church and seizing of monasteries and other church property in England which made buildings like this go into ruin, another example being
