Cool architecture thread?
Google Zaha Hadid - Heydar Aliyev Centre
The interior is also really amazing.
Ciudad de las artes y las ciencias. Valencia,
Building is insane when the light shines on it at certain times of day
these "people" cant even build mud huts. so no.
>thread saturated with modernist pseudo-structure garbage.
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Museum of Human Rights
I've been to this building
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Built for the World Expo, 1967.
anyone actually appreciate this or nah?
2501 Perrier House
Smply Mod Homes
Nelson, British Columbia, Canada
Fogo Island Inn
Fogo Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
the mechanical floors house giant wind turbines facing into the usual wind direction, the skinny side's edges collect rainwater for toilets and air conditioning
quit that pseudomodern shitbuildings, murilards.
pic related is a true building. but in order to have one of those, you`d need a history, which you dont.
suck my european cock, fatlardos
Unfortunately, the turbines were never added, as the extra power could not be resold under Guangzhou law.
Good article on wind turbines in buildings here, pg 9
Damn I love these old European castles<333 Which European country has most castles and can you visit them all? Also POST MOAR castles.
That shitty picture really does it a disservice.
My favourite library at my university.
The main building of the of the college.
castles are the badass. I actually saw something like this in Mexico. Some had actually build their own fucking castle. It looked pretty good considering we're talking about poor people.
It seems like a boring existence.
Hah diamond tower probably looked cool before that skyscraper went up but now it looks like trash.
>posts picture of turks and maybe some berber north africans
lets remember germanic peoples couldn't build shit either until glorious masterrace mediterranean romans came into their pathetic existence
So.. they erected a building that looks only slightly like an artist's imaginative depiction of the Tower of Babel which is only talked about in a few paragraphs (if that) of the Old Testament.
and that is supposed to mean something?
There's a difference between having lighter skin and being Nordic. People often forget that there are lighter skinned people living in africa too (Not talking about South African Afrikaners)
It is off center and driving me crazy.
>Giant hotel in North Korea
>expecting people to visit North Korea willingly when the people living there don't even want to live there
>Completely empty and half finished
Good use of municipal funds there
Red brick comfy af
Biometric supertrees in Singapore.
Amazing rehabilitation programme to bring wildlife back into the cities.
Went here last summer. Barcelona is an amazing city and this was incredible to visit.
It's interesting, but it's too small to get a good look at.
Can you imagine if there was a fire in one of those buildings? God damn. I'd rather live in an african slum than live in that hive of human misery
>most businesses are illegal
>can you even imagine shooting enemies off your brothers wall while he shoots enemies off of yours and you just look at each other and laugh because you have total visibility since the design is so lovely oh man
Here's a doc on it. Nightmare fuel place to live considering most occupants were residents.
Tutankhamun may have had some Hyksos ancestry, which would not be surprising, but the Hyksos were from western Asia, not northern Europe. More to the point, the Hyksos rule didn't begin until the fifteenth dynasty, ca. 1674 B.C. However, the great pyramid of Giza was built in the fourth dynasty, ca. 2580 B.C., nine centuries earlier.
King Tut has absolutely nothing to do with the pyramids. It's the equivalent of arguing that the Maya did not build the Great Pyramid of Cholula because Cortés was Spanish.
I understand the function of a castle but what's the point of replicating moats and the like for these estates that are basically the equivalent of a single house.
It's not like they're meant to withstand a siege. I can't imagine the nobility holing up in one of these from their enemies or from angry peasants. I assume it's just for the aesthetics?
That's the skyline from Wolfenstein: the new order (reality where the Nazis won) but it's based on a model that would have been used to reconstruct Berlin after the war. He didnt make it himself
Sauce for these vintage house plans:
Part of evolving is renovation
Functionality > Form
In the classical period all architecture was built for few reasons, government and religion
Nowadays a city is better off building a park than a museum.
Europe has old architecture everywhere... then something like that Earthquake that happened to Italy last autumn DESTROY these CLASSIC buildings with people INSIDE!
ikr. I went there thinking it was just gonna be some fancy stuff on the outside but then you go in and see the ceilings and stained glass.
How the fuck would that road system work? I see 0 ways to get a vehichle from one level to another, also the perspective of the two horizontal roads in the middle is fucked.
The back road seems to be the same level as the two vertical roads based off of where they meet on each side, but in reference to the buildings the back road is at the same level as the horizontal road in the front
True, but when it came to nomads vs city folk, the nomads got their asses handed to them thoroughly
>b-but, but, the m-mongols!
That's one example. Compared to the majority of cases in history. They're the exception, not the rule.
well yah i didnt mean literally
>I see 0 ways to get a vehichle from one level to another
Because the ramps are out of frame, obviously. There is nothing impossible about fucking overpasses.
Sant Pau Hospital, Barcelona
Visited it and inside is amazing aswell
>mfw civil engineer
>mfw imagining the dangers of that building
I always walk past this, I like it!

Parc de la ciutadella in Barcelona
It's like coming back to the 19th century
there are zero right angles in the entire structure
Not really of the caliber of other buildings ITT, but the Peter B. Lewis building is still pretty legit.
Frank Lloyd Wright master race reporting in.
yeah m8, his building LOOK cool but good luck working in one, the Marin civic center has all sorts of problems, that metal roof cost us taxpays millions to fix.
and the only way to get into anyplace is from escalators for some reason, its kinda weird. that tower is neat tho, it looks taller from the highway and as you drive around to park it changes shape.
its not real you stupid fucks
