I thought this was beautiful so I went out and found some more, here’s some of the highlights: (http://cdn.siemreap.info/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/Taprohmfacetower01.jpg) (http://kivafellows.files.wordpress.com/2008/07/angkor-wat-130.jpg) 3:http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/31/Ta_Prohm_(Takeo).JPG (http://quakingbear.files.wordpress.com/2008/12/img_34591.jpg)
Top 1000 Architecture Pictures
It is a bloody long climb to the top of that tower, but very much worth it. The history of the cathedral is quite interesting. Begun in the 13th century, it was only partially finished when the Reformation hit and the pilgrimages that it
When i saw this last year there was a light cloud cover, and when you looked up at the building it looked like it was falling because of the clouds moving above it. Every time I looked up I freaked out. Malmo is a
I’ve been there! It’s really pretty amazing how they keep all of the different environments just so. The story behind the first and second closed missions of Biosphere was very interesting too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biosphere_2 10/10 would go again!
Agreed. That top area is all I’d really want. You could have barbeques up there are just sit and chill in the evenings. Building your house on a slope and then parking your car on the roof is also a really economical use of
I love this thing so I thought it deserved [a better gallery of images](http://imgur.com/a/ndudC#0). Image 3 shows it in context with another piece from the [Stuart Art Collection](http://stuartcollection.ucsd.edu), [Vices and Virtues](http://stuartcollection.ucsd.edu/artists/nauman.shtml); Image 5, you can just make out [Snake Path](http://stuartcollection.ucsd.edu/artists/smith-a.shtml) leading up to Geisel
Agree! As a law student and architecture aficionado, I was really excited to visit this building during my stay in Brussels. It was a shame that it was in the middle of renovations, so the facade was completely filled with scaffolding.
Holy crap, this thing is real? I thought for sure that was just a concept design. “Grand Lisboa” refers to Macau’s historic relationship with Portugal, I presume.
I’m no historian but: >At the time of the death of King François I in 1547, the work had cost 444,070 livres And… > The livre poids de marc or livre de Paris was equivalent to about 489.5 grams I’m not sure if the
Great submission! The mountains are spot-on, and you did an awesome job on lighting–I can’t even tell those are edges! But I would turn up the saturation for the roof a little so it’s believable; you can almost tell it used to be black
The color scheme is reminiscent of those dated looking buildings from around the 50s Basically the shape of the building looks striking now, but once that wears out the building will start to look worse
When they filmed the RoboCop TV series around Toronto back in the 1990s, I don’t know if they used Robarts but they definitely used [Mississauga’s central library and city hall](http://www.emporis.com/images/show/664849-Large.jpg) to represent some kind of futuristic buildings.
It’s not too far away from Tbilisi (Capital of Georgia). 4 hours by car or 45 minutes by airplane. I don’t know if Batumi airport has any international flights, but you can go Tbilisi tickets are affordable and the city is stunning (and inexpensive).
Las Setas. The construction seemed to take an age and the locals were more than skeptical, but the result are spectacular to me; and the view from the top and treatment of ruins below are both perfect. Even the local taxi drivers are starting
I’ve been a few times because I live in a neighboring city…. it doesn’t look nearly as nice when it is swarming with people. I guess I never noticed how nice the place is because I have always rushed through it.
Designed by an American firm and built by VN companies, it’s a quite modern and safe structure. It breathes fire every night–doesn’t seem at all unsafe when I’ve seen it. Several stories up, nothing remotely close to it. Wish I could’ve found a pic
Sometimes I wish the engineers got as much recognition as the architects (or ANY recognition). Awesome feat from everyone involved.
Reminds me of my old church, *[Basilica of the Sacred Heart](http://usembassykyiv.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/basilica_of_the_sacred_heart_university_of_notre_dame.jpg)* at the University of Notre Dame. Albeit this one is accordingly a bit more grand.
It’s the Chinese National Center for the Performing Arts. Much of the building is actually under the lake you see in the picture. You enter on one side, walk under the lake (there’s a cool glass ceiling that you can look through to see
I’m curious how they are going to wash it 😛 I’m across the river in a 32 floor building, and the way they do it with this small sky scraper is that, they have guys on ropes going down the facade and washing windows.
I like when you see real life buildings in obviously fictional cities. Like here you can clearly see buildings that look just like the Walt Disney Concert Hall, or in a city in Battlestar Galactica there is a building that [clearly resembles](http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n227/emistal/CapricaCityBeforeCylonAttack.jpg) the [Conde
I hear you. I worked two blocks away for a few years and never made my way in there. I have no excuses and just need to make it happen.
The two useless room/spaces on the second floor look like broken shipping containers, but I’m sure the ~~artist~~ designer emptied out a thesaurus of words that are synonyms for “sleek,” “innovative,” and “cutting-edge” when attempting to describe this… thing. A verbal amalgamation not entirely
[Yeah it’s incredible how out of place it looked](https://www.flickr.com/photos/manchesterarchiveplus/5442931088/in/set-72157625916499475) but it’s still architecturally relevant today. And while the building was renovated and extended four times in its history, the only major change architecturally was when the building was renovated to use reflective glass panels.
