New group for anyone who likes a bit of cool architecture...
Pick me, pick me, pick me :biggrin:
Only if you don't design any hot dog shaped buildings!
Heres one house the Goth in me has got to see (one day) Horace Walpole's 'Strawberry Hill.' (Check the Long Gallery.)
Unfortunately, its going to miss its previously scheduled, spring 2010 reopening
Cool! Kinda reminds me of Pugin's house, the Grange... (but older, lol).
Cool group, I had no idea there were others here who were interested in architecture! I wonder if any members here are architects?
Not sure, some are studying architecture tho...
I'm just a fan meself.
Oh, I love stuff like this.
I fucking love buildings and shit! Like, fuck yeah!:biggrin1:
No, but really, I do enjoy architecture. Count me in, Joli.:smile:
Becomming one... Does that count?
Is there a connection between the English word gaudy meaning ostentatiously ornamented and architect Antonî Gaudî?
I was afraid to ask that question last summer in Barcelona
Cheeky l'il bugger. :tongue:
Join away, sunshine.
Not sure, but he seems to be working under that assumption...
I love the Guggenheim Museum In Bilbao :smile:

i also love tthe Getty in Los Angeles
i loved this one the first time i saw it
i love architecture...but even more so when part of a grand landscaping design as well....i find buildings interesting to look at, but i find homes with real estate/land/gardens and that type of incorporation most of all.
No. Gaudy is from the Latin word "gaudium", meaning "enjoyment". It far predates Mr Gaudi.
Looks like you have a hankering for Deconstructivism, with big irregular forms and an attention to materials. Gehry designed a DeCon skyscraper in NYC...
yes to a large degree...i enjoy looking and admiring that particular style...though i don't know if i'd like to live in it. :wink::biggrin1:
but of course i enjoy almost all styles, for the aesthetic pleasure, for example, a massive Georgian Mansion is to me rather boring...but it still is worth looking at to admire the craftsmanship, design and simplicity. :smile:
I fell in love with this house when I saw it on the telly, I think Tara Palmer Tomkinson was presenting.
Pierre Cardin 's bubble house by Antti Lovag - Art and Architecture
Imagine the mad parties you could have !
Wow! I love it - modern buildings that cleverly fit in with unusual surroundings are amazing.
I like the Hajj terminal at Jeddah Airport (made from canvas, etc), but there are no really good pics of it.
