    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.

    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.

    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.
