    Architecture is fucking boss

    You just gotta dig it

    Looking at a picture of the inside of a cathedral and just being "hooooooooly fuck" is a common response
    But an architect will be all "hoooooooooly fuck, i see what they did there"

    I always thought it would be more fun visiting awesome architectural feats than designing them. Glad to hear I was totally in the right.

    Star build forts and other non regular forms are awesome because they are easier to defend than rectangle ones.

    FAQ, is that the one in Spain that they've been building for over a hundred years?

    Thing is awesome.

    Saw that thing back at the start of 2008 and it already towered above everything else in the skyline by a significant amount.

    Too bad Dubai is a terrible city and that building is being built by what are essentially slaves.

    Is that the Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família?

    I was there a year ago, it was incredibly beautiful.

    this looks like the first building that ever had an elevator and they were kind of scared it might break the rest of the building

    How totally amazing would it be to live in a building that Gaudi or Gehry designed? (I don't care how lost you would get, the answer is totally amazing.)

    I'm also a big fan of some of the classics, like this one, hiding behind the Palais de Justice.

    199825987_4ac448b51d.jpg

    Maybe I just love it so much because I was not anticipating the interior at all.
