Top 1000 Architecture Pictures

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

There is something about that building and setting that really catches my eye. Some photos of the building: [1](http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-xhi70pfI0U8/TpNQJeULUWI/AAAAAAAANSg/E8BjDgQqY9s/s1600/Fermi%2BNational%2BAccelerator%2BLaboratory.jpg), [2](http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/40/Fermilab_WilsonHall.JPG), [3](https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5576/14995435541_3049049fb3_n.jpg), [4](http://news.sciencemag.org/sites/default/files/article_images/si-Fermilab_aerial.jpg) and [5](http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6a/High_Rise_at_Fermilab.jpg).

Socar Tower, South Korea

According to wikipedia, this building is actually in [Azerbaijan, and is currently being built.](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SOCAR_Tower). The architects were from S. Korea. Also, computer renderings of buildings almost always look better than the actual building in real life.

Rakotzbruke, Kromlau, Germany

Thank you for posting this! I saved this picture a long time ago and never knew the location it was taken. Yet another reason to add Germany to the list of places I want to visit!

Old Trocadéro palace, Paris (now gone)

It was built for the Exposition Universelle of 1878 and replaced in 1937 by the Chaillot palace. other pics : http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/4f/36._Paris_-_Le_Trocad%C3%A9ro_et_le_Pont_d%27l%C3%A9ma_A.L..jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f6/Eiffel_Tower_and_the_Trocadero%2C_Exposition_Universal%2C_1900%2C_Paris%2C_France.jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f0/Palais_du_Trocadero_Salle.jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b9/Le_Palais_du_Trocad%C3%A9ro,_Exposition_Universelle_1878.jpg

U-Bahn Station, Munich, Germany

I realize that, but they still appear thin compared to [Toronto’s trains](http://urbantoronto.ca/sites/default/files/imagecache/display-slideshow/images/articles/2011/07/2015/urbantoronto-2015-5780.jpg) I think.

The Overhang House by DADA & Partners

I’m making a note that if I’m ever a millionaire with spending money then I’ll contract with these guys to build me a fine house with this aesthetic. I love all the hard angles, clever lighting and material choices.

Tyne Bridge, Newcastle

Yeh the design was based on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, actually built by the [same company](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorman_Long). [Bonus photo of them building it](http://imgur.com/7x0lSFb)

Room with an exceptionnal view, would you try it?

I was just having the kleenex conversation with a client the other day, so that’s pretty ironic you mention that. I totally understand what you’re saying, and I don’t think you’re wrong. And yes, it is definitely pretentious. It’s not so much that I

Looks like a roman bath with modern elements

It looks gorgeous, and I get the idea behind the title. So I’m bringing it up as a trivia for those who do not know, not trying to be pedantic: Greek, Roman and medieval styling was flashy as _all the fucks_. http://io9.com/5616498/ultraviolet-light-reveals-how-ancient-greek-statues-really-looked

Tod’s Building Tokyo

I had to design one of [these](https://945608f0-a-62cb3a1a-s-sites.googlegroups.com/site/klusbedrijfamersfoort/home/waterpas-timmerman-amersfoort.jpg?attachauth=ANoY7cpFWzE9cIjNP3YUe45MNHnkDF8tCrtNap6dEUZuXa5r0H9dPEKsxlnR9Y4VacD98ex6AHmLdh50tGq6ahAxx7pxlVKSsFJbgRib8XicKSztPgKq–x1yTtH6I7Kf_IsqUt42Kk1V-7I1tjdP11vSVf7wOMgAsPQHVQcQ4jiL5ylVYd2gvWp3HG28fOnjFZcy4XzWoHYyI-ZThuNDuTkeAZRK-886NGGXAr28DOJbLsK-REV5b9o0qj_UgRA6SDah6HS-5p4&attredirects=0) in the style of an architect, I chose Toyo Ito and this building was one of the major inspirations. I’ll try to find the solid-works drawing I made, it was a long time ago and I dropped

Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

That is pretty frigging cool, especially in a place like Singapore that’s tight for space. I wonder how much of a wind it could handle though. Edit: I found [this interesting article](http://www.ctbuh.org/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=h7zopZwN9WU%3d&tabid=1090&language=en-GB) about the building, but it doesn’t answer my question.
