I didn’t do much to be honest. A couple of highpass filters set to blend setting ‘soft light’ to sharpen the image. Then a black and white filter at around 30% opacity to desaturate the colours. I also used the b&w filter to darken

Ewing Kauffman (the namesake) was a pharmaceutical entreprenuer, among many things. He basically started a pharmaceutical company, sold it for a crap ton of money and was very charitable with the profits. The Kansas City Royals baseball stadium is named after him as well
33 Thomas was a AT&T routing center. It was not designed for human’s to inhabit other than security, and maintenance. Those large rectangular openings are ventilation shafts for computers which originally were vacuum tube based. It is designed to seal itself off in the
As someone who currently lives in DC, I was thinking this was supposed to be in Vienna, VA at first, which was obviously a little confusing (since that isn’t exactly a major skyscraper center).
Geologist here. All cliffs erode, house is fucked, can confirm. I don’t know how long it will take, but at some point in the future that cliff will crumble to sand and the house will fall in the sea and the sea will wash
>The idea for a massive central library goes back to the 1915 campus plan, drawn up by Gould and his partner, Charles Bebb. Modifying earlier plans, they envisioned a central plaza that would link a liberal arts quadrangle to the east with a science
The building actually contains both Chicago’s City Hall and the (Cook) County Building. The city owns the western half and the county the eastern half. That’s the reason only half of the roof contains a garden. The city choose to create the rooftop garden
Ah, if you’re a tourist, never mind! It’s just a local thing, which roots in the snobbish and arrogant attitude of the people living in Munich. At least that’s what visitors from the countryside felt in former times. I’m sure that’s a non-issue nowadays,
That’s incredible! I guess I’ll have to bump Russia up a few notches on my travel destinations list.

Really? I went to Kyoto a year ago and had no trouble at all getting in as an American. I speak Japanese, but all of our [my father and I] tickets were largely bought beforehand or with the teller speaking English, and we had
I hate to get into semantics but I think it’s interesting to note that the monastery wasn’t constructed in the traditional sense, but rather it was carved right out of the rock face, which makes it all the more impressive
One can actually visit this place. From [Wikipedia](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osaka_castle): The castle is open to the public, and is easily accessible from [Osakajōkōen Station](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osakaj%C5%8Dk%C5%8Den_Station) on the [JR West](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JR_West) [Osaka Loop Line](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osaka_Loop_Line). It is a popular spot during festival seasons, and especially during the [cherry blossom](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sakura) bloom
No. Not at all. In fact it was even in our contract to NOT speak Hungarian to students since it is supposed to be immersive. If you would like this is the website: Home page However, that being said keep in mind that the
Some people like the excitement of that. But more importantly, you can rest assured that structural engineers know what they’re doing. They have a lot of experience (good and bad) to draw from in making their buildings stand up. Especially in a high profile
From [Wikipedia](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bundeswehr_Military_History_Museum): >Before opening in October 2011 as the Bundeswehr Military History Museum, the building underwent six years of extensive construction. Using the design of architect Daniel Libeskind, the Neo-Classicist facade on the historic arsenal has been interrupted. Libeskind added a transparent arrowhead to
