Idk what the majority opinion was, but I know there was significant outspoken criticism of the design of the buildings. Which I tend to agree with. Wiki has a decent blurb about that: >The World Trade Center design brought criticism of its aesthetics from

>I took this photo in spring 2012 in Rome, my hometown. It was taken with a monorail view camera (5×6 film) and manually developed, after it was scanned and post produced. I took care of the entire process and working on film, it took
I was there just a few months ago. The resort overlooks the ocean and there are numerous shaded rooms like this, with sitting pillows inside to chill out and enjoy tropical cocktails and Indonesian treats/tapas. Here’s another shot I took: View post on imgur.com

I was thinking of [The blue gate](http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_5UG7QsC9-GY/TH_1tiQ_CDI/AAAAAAAADFs/oeRbtL-Iw2s/s1600/10082819.jpg) at Djurgården, Stockholm.
Holy shit. I never realized they were different buildings until now. I thought it just had two names.
That’s another church. In the folk-museum on Bygdøy. That one is actually “reconstructed” based on the church in Borgund. In the 1600s to 1800s it looked nothing like it looks today. They are not suer what the original look was. How it looks today:
It’s a cool building, but I found it pretty hard to navigate (there’s a sort of central empty space, and when you’re trying to get to the other side you can find a lot of dead ends), and the staff were terrible. Also a
Definitely an awesome house, heres [more images as well](http://www.the-capsule.com/2014/03/modern-hover-home-in-los-angeles-by-glen-irani-architects/)

When this was built, people did not have water coming out of taps in their houses. They would walk down the steps and back up again carrying water for their households in buckets and jars. Imagine 1000 people doing this at the same time.
Really positive. Of course it’s different compared to many other places especially because you have to be with a guide at all times. You’re not locked into your room or anything like that so you can go for a walk by yourself in the

Wow. So I knew about this but I’d never seen [this picture](http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/wales/1110359.stm) essentially from the same spot, taken the day after the murders there (which that article talks about).
Any detailed CO2 analysis I’ve ever done, or seen done, basically comes down to energy used to obtain the material, and energy more or less translates to dollars, so a quick and sloppy carbon footprint analysis is roughly the cost of goods, not labor
Read: Corporate ambitions vs non-corporate ambitions. While the sheer newness of the skyscraper scared the first would be tenants, people grew accustomed to the idea and the initial skyscrapers proved to be commercially and economically viable. Many modern super tall buildings in the middle
My girlfriend and her family are from Romania and when I went with her to visit last summer I saw this building. She said it used to be a library building for the university nearby but was set on fire during the revolution in
You really can’t beat the price on it. That is its best feature as well as the f/2.8. I think I got my lens for around $275. I don’t use it very often because the exaggerated perspective isn’t always what you would want. Also,
As an architect, what it looks like to me is, someone forgot about the fire egress and at the last minute they all just said “Oh FERKKKKKKKK” and just slapped them babies right off the side and called it a day.
It was low tide. The buildings are adapted to the sea. Without water there won’t come a ship, no need for a ladder (except if somebody manages to fall in the silt). [Here’s a pic](http://www.hamburg-tourism.de/typo3temp/pics/panthermedia_1853369_800x538_6b577ce2c6.jpg) at standard level.
> Every time I look at this building, or  this , or  this , or  this, I see it as one of a billion pieces of concrete devoid of personality. It’s actually really interesting that you’d phrase it this way because
Why is this guy the only one noticing this? I’m no cost estimator but I imagine the cost of cleaning and rebuilding the tube, providing clean water, new utilities, new conduits, new floors, etc is insane. I’ve never been to France but I do
The style also relates to the time it came into popularity in the 1960s and 70s. During the height of the Cold War, security became a primary concern and was thus reflected in the design and appearance of buildings. While this was definitely not
Just saw Bjork over the weekend. I won’t try to quantify how much of her musical aesthetics should be attributed to her culture rather than her individual creativity, but I think she is a great example of how Icelandic art holds a place at
