I think the internet has ruined me, for a split second before I processed the image my mind leaped to the conclusion that the footpaths were in the shape of a swastika… Absolutely beautiful building and landscaping though.
In the surrounding buildings all the boobs in the statues were defaced by the Muslims that built the later sections of the complex after the Hindus. I’ll see if I can find a picture from when l was there years back. View post on
~~Just a little remark: When you make a sidenote do it properly. The “count” was actually the Bavarian king Ludwig II and Neuschwanstein was by no means meant for hunting – Ludwig II was fiercely opposed to any kind of killing. He even went
That still doesn’t make it make sense. “It actually cost a lot of money to change the London or New York skyline in some places.” – what does that mean? Obviously it costs a lot of money to create a skyscraper, other than the
That roof is a pretty loud statement.. Unfortunately all I see is an unlucky roofer arguing with an architect: “What do you mean make it look more organic!? I thought you said you wanted the lines to line up this way…. more like this??
I want so bad to live in a house with this kind of design but i cant even fathom how expensive they would be. I can only hope by the time I’m actually in a position to buy a house we’ll live in a
The sign on the top is actually from the building behind. What you see in the front is actually the church, yes. And yes, the outside is really ugly, even more so today, because the concrete crumbles. The inside has a certain something, especially
I guess I’m more of a science/museum minded person. Yes, it’s definitely dated. I first went in I think 84? and for me it was less imagination (read: Magic Kingdom) and more reality (read:museum-like). Yes, the AT&T dome was a bit of a commercial,
These are actually referred to by Sevillans as Las Cetas, or The Mushrooms. They look like mushrooms when you’re standing beneath them. They also offer pretty great views for a small fee.
It is gorgeous inside and out (too bad you can’t take pictures inside). And that hill is a bitch and a half to climb up, I can’t imagine having to bring all the building materials up!
Hey Guy or Girl, I really like this shot, and it’s similar [to a few](https://500px.com/photo/77032147/edit-by-david-parker?from=user) I’ve taken…Think out of the kindness of your heart on this xmas eve you could send over the RAW file so I can do a little of this an
That’s a pretty disingenuous shot. Here’s a more representative one: http://www.willfox.com/images/skyscrapers/heron/2.jpg What are you proposing? Skyscrapers made out of stone? That stone building was high tech for its time, and Foster’s tower is high tech for its time. Its steel exoskeleton uses less steel
I don’t believe so, although they did a film a movie here back in the 50s, apparently. Here’s a little more info on it, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morey_mansion
We had two buildings of this design on campus when I started work here. The Mudd law school, and the attached Eliot Hall. We used to use them to give directions…..”Just go down this street till you see the really ugly buildings, and turn
Am I missing something? That large section on the right doesn’t look closed in or anything. Does it not rain where this is at? Or is that some kind of enclosed patio with outdoor furniture? Does something come down to enclose the space?
Just visited the museum a few weeks ago, that staircase is pretty amazing. The staircase spirals tighter and tighter, so you go from gentle slope, to sloped steps, to regular steps. Pretty awesome way to end the tour.

I agree, it’s a little garish, but I like the idea behind it: all of the rectangles/cells are stills from various Dutch TV shows and movies. Also, the architect talks about (in a lecture I posted in another comment) how one of his basic
Photoshop is great for this, it lets you input fractions of degrees of rotation, lets you display a grid and blue adjustable lines that help tremendously with alignment. If you did the rotation with a slider and your mouse (or worse, trackpad), I know
I’m afraid there is not a single answer to your question. Arches pretty much stem from the fact that both shared a strong cultural ancestor which was the Roman Empire. I think that you’ll find out that since the awakening of the islamic world
That is amazing and hauntingly beautiful. It’s like the Thames Town and Little Paris projects except on an even grander scale. How does stuff like this get built without even considering the market?
