It depends. I’ve seen some terrible construction that could qualify as a ruin right off the bat. It frequently has Donald Trump’s name on it. Fallingwater was a challenging structure to build and maintain, however it has been cared for and restored intensively, so

We have a similar one in Munich, with colored sticks, and it does just the same when you’re going by at more than walking speed because they start obscuring each other. It looks awesome.
Lahore, Pakistan Here’s a link: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1693911 It’s hilarious because the developer is known to make replicas of famous landmarks around the world such as Trafalgar Square, Statue of liberty and Eiffel Tower but this particular one caught me by surprise.
Apparently he started making it when I was two. It’s been here almost my whole life and I had no idea. Did you know about the castle on the plateau?

I spent the first 23 years of my life in Newfoundland, yet experienced so little of it. Now I make it a point to visit new places every time I go home to visit. Adding Fogo to the list.
I visited this place once. The glass wall is closer to giant cylinders. I was told the There were random cylinders of different colors and when the sun it’s them right they project onto the ground. Also during shows there are lights in the
If someone said to me “If you can guess whose house this is I’ll give you a million billion moneys”, I’d never have guessed. Nice house though. Edit: I sent this picture to my wife and asked her whose house it was. First she
Related to this, I lived in China for two years and I noticed then that a lot of contemporary buildings are coated in ceramic tiles. Is this part of a larger architectural tradition?

My Alma Mater – this library is almost never used by students, scholars or professors, moreover it houses the famous [Book of Kells](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_Kells) and other historical Irish artifacts such as [Brian Boru’s harp](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity_College_Harp). Famously, George Lucas lifted the design of the old library for
I think the elongated triangular shape is used to create the focal point at the end, guiding visitors towards the statue head of FDR. I also read somewhere about the symmetrical form relating to naval boat theme, connecting to FDR’s love for the sea,
This is a fact actually. There were a number of ideas about how the city of the future should be organized, and one of the ideas (complete with sketches) was a series of different levels of transportation between building for service and pedestrians, and
The writings around the arch read : >Աշխարհ անցիր, Արարատի նման ճերմակ գագաթ չկա, Ինչպես անհաս փառքի ճամփա` ես իմ Մասիս սարն եմ սիրում. Which can be translated as : >Roam the whole world and you will not find a peak as white as
The whole town of Bayeux is really quaint. It’s exactly what you picture when you think of a French town. I used to study at the university in Caen, the next city over, and Bayeux was my favorite place to spend spend a romantic
[the Autostrada del Sole](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autostrada_A1_\(Italy\)) is an actual highway in Italy, it’s quite infamous for it’s traffic jams. Apparently the church’s real name is Chiesa di San Giovanni battista ( Church of Saint John the Baptist) but it’s also called like that due to it’s
No it’s fucking not. # It’s just a giant self-indulgent monument that looks like an atom when viewed from a helicopter; which is completely meaningless since nobody in NK aside from the supreme leader has access to computers with which to see the aerial
That was one of the neatest things I visited in Montreal. Did you manage to crop out the metal bird things in the reflecting pool or did they remove those?
This is not a very common occurrence. A more common place one might find a public sauna in Sweden is at a gym, public bath, spa or ski resort. They don’t pay as much of a role in daily lives in the southern regions
Holy shit. That’s really far. People are cool. Animals are cool too though. A red kangaroo can repeatedly jump 25-30 ft. laterally, and as high as 9 ft vertically. Their maximum lateral jump is 45 ft.! That’s how they run, and they can go
A good structural engineer will work with an architect if the architect has something in mind for the concrete. Even if they end up having to say ‘we can’t do that’, I’ve never met a competent structural engineer who would refuse to listen to
It’s all in the human scale in the detailing methinks. Reminds me of an old native american ruin site I saw as a kid in a steep cliff wall. The overall form is massive but all the little adobe huts blocked on top of
Performed here with my high school’s wind ensemble just a few weeks ago at the Wind Band Festival! We also got to hear a bunch of other schools’ bands and the SSU Symphonic Wind Ensemble at the end. It was an awesome experience!
