I’m no expert on the topic (just a lowly photographer!), but I believe all the wood you see is unpainted, though I’m sure it has been treated/varnished. This was taken around midday, so the light should was pretty natural and didn’t alter the color
Top 1000 Architecture Pictures
Oh, so they demolished part of it? It’s always been a source of fascination to me and I knew it was in pretty bad shape. I’ve just hoped that the guy may get enough money to finish it from somewhere.
I thought at first that it looked like something out of Skyrim… then I realized that it actually looked like vertebrae, and I was a little unsettled. Good Halloween-time post!
I wonder how easy it is to get to that vantage point, you always see it photographed like this. I’ve been to Macchu Pichu and it’s actually very easy to take that iconic shot you always see, I wonder if this is positioned similarly.
It’s my least favourite London station. Honestly, part of the attraction (a very small part, admittedly) of moving back to Leicester is knowing I’ve got a nice station to arrive at if I go to London. St Pancras is gorgeous – elegant and full
300 days of sunshine per year. Edit: Lest you think that’s silly, we really do normally get sun immediately after a snow. And it’s so arid that any cement that isn’t shaded melts and dries quickly – often within a day. At the same
No. This is an abandoned, old houseen. Most “houses” that look like that are used as sheds and such nowadays. there are some used as houses, but they are in much better condition. Edit: The more I look at it the newer it looks…
in most of recorded history europe has been considered the “west”. kind of like how when you think of easterners or the east in general, you are usually considering people of asian origin, not including Europe. (you as a general term here, obviously) Yes
Exactly. It seems terribly arrogant to tell your customer how to build a religious structure — a place where they will spend time praying and connecting with their faith. It’s absolutely important to bend to their whims when it comes to something like that
Not sure about it now, but around 6 years ago, when this building started operating, the turbines were causing huge noise and vibration that caused the tenants to complain, and it was almost never on , I have seen it on only for couple
It’s true that wealthy Saudis diversify their investments. That doesn’t mean that their economy is diversified. This leaves their economy vulnerable to fluctuations in the energy market. Even if the economy is good, that doesn’t mean people will use the building space. Also, the
While you can’t see it from the picture, ~~it~~ **there** is ~~actually~~ a double helix staircase **at chambord**. Also one of the main reasons some people believe the place was designed by Leonardo Da Vinci, who had plans for similar staircases, and was living
That, and the fact that the roof of the main amphitheater space is brought around to establish the flooring of the same. It’s a wonderful concept, and the roof itself serves as a wonderful social space.
At the top of the stairs to the right of the picture, there’s a massive tree stump. Don’t know why it’s there, but it’s cool!
I was curious what the view might look like from one of the windows, so I looked it up on Google Maps. [Turns out there’s a panorama view that includes this library, taken from a ferry!](https:[email protected],12.5833436,3a,75y,355.62h,81.46t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sksIZtAlJRYbBsjsMW3C3nA!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo1.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DksIZtAlJRYbBsjsMW3C3nA%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D219.65488%26pitch%3D0!7i13312!8i6656)
I’ve never seen that building before. And okay I don’t go to Birmingham hugely often, and not since last summer, but that looks like something I would have noticed from the top of the new Library (which I visited while it was in construction,
The Sagrada Familia was breathtaking. Utrip created an itinerary for my European vacation and once I saw the [Sagrada Familia page](https://utrip.com/discover/spain/barcelona/sagrada_familia) I knew I had to check it out. If you truly love architecture then this is a must see!
Beneath the glass pyramid seen from the exterior is the ticket booths and entrance; there is another, upside down glass pyramid nearby which has the shopping mall surrounding it. The upside down pyramid isn’t visible from outside as it’s hidden within the roundabout at
The best part about going there is that you can rent a 3 man rowboat for an hour for 5 euros. There is almost no current, so even if you are inept, it’s great fun to cruise under the chateau.

Lucked out with a beautiful November day at the royal palace in Seoul, Korea. I tried to condense all my pictures to [just a few of my favorites.](http://imgur.com/a/vQRnj)
It’s called the “[Oriental Pearl Tower](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oriental_Pearl_Tower)”
The Smothsons did a steel framed school at the start of the brutalist phase and Goldfinger did some brick dwellings but the majority of brutalist is indeed concrete. Brutalism is often inspired by the ‘warehouse aesthetic’, referring to the honesty of materials and celebration
I think many times when trying to dispute things it would be better to come up with an example. I agree that, while just thinking about it, I’m sure some trees don’t need very deep roots, they can’t all be the same right? So
