Great Architecture

Great architecture is almost a thing of the past. Inspiring structures have been replaced by drab, gray offices. The need to surround ourselves with things of beauty and inspiration has been replaced by dull efficiency with the almighty buck as the bottom line. Gone are the days of building for the sake of creation. I think that's why so many of us are drawn to vintage beauty. The old world had something special that we somehow lost along the way. I want to take this time to reflect on great architecture and dream that someday we will start building the way we used to.

St. Peter's in the Vatican. Once you've been there, nothing else is quite the same.

They just don't make things like this anymore.

The domes and railing add just a little something extra to the stairs. Nothing needed but definitely missed. Put there just because.

I am greatly weighed down by your opinions for that specific tale. A additional deeper and staged expertise could well be very fine for me
