that weird Gaudi cathedral in Spain thats still not finished. I've never seen it in person, but I hope to one day- it reminds me almost of a gingerbread house.

Difficult to picture accurately since it's a huge area of several square kilometres, and it's the landscape architecture that's king. Here are a few tasters:

Must-visit if you're ever in Stockholm, together with Asplund's city library, the city hall, the concert house and a few other architectural highlights.

That's interesting. How long is that bridge?

The city of Seville, Spain, built six new bridges in preparation for Expo '92. Spanish architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava designed the Alamillo Bridge (1992), shown here. Lightweight and sculptural in appearance it calls to mind a harp or bird, according to Calatrava. The bridge is 200 m (656 ft) long and the single pylon that supports the roadway rises 140 m (459 ft) above road level.
nice to use the advantage of gravity in your construction

Those buildings are pretty. Shame about the Belgian guy and that ugly bridge.

656ft....that's not too bad. I'll let it pass, even though I really truly like super long bridges.

mr.G
15-11-2005, 13:55:00
The funny thing is that the buildings are designed by a Italian architect Natalini.


My bridge can handle one heavy italian/belgium boytje - FACT!!!!

:lol: the umbrella is color-coordinated

Its a toss up for me...

http://www.electricscotland.com/historic/pics/elgin%20cathedral%202.jpg - the ruined Elgin cathedral is ruined (but was being restored), but I loved this place. Its more than the architecture, I guess. I saw it during the first vacations my wife and I ever took together. We saw lots of castles, ruins, towers, etc. but this one stands out. It was one of those perfect days.

http://www.inaoep.mx/~sole/turismo/Yucatan/chichen1.jpg - this is just the pyramid at Chichen Itza - the ball court where men competed for the honor of being sacrificed and going straight to paradise is nearby...http://willware.net:8080/cancun2k1/ball_court_again.jpg
as is the all-natural well of sacrifices http://www.eveandersson.com/photos/photo-display?photo_path=%2Fphotos%2Fmexico%2Fcancun%2F8 9&photo_size=large
