Not necessarily a building, more of an architectual puzzle but I have always admired Stonehenge for the sheer size and majesty.


I love big going into big churches and the London ones are fantastic: St Pauls and Westmister Abbey. The pair in Liverpool are amazing and the massive gothic one in New York ain't bad either. Oh, and the Vatican obviously.
Actually London is just full of great architecture. Take a walk along the South Bank from the Eye and just have a look at what's on offer on the other side of the river: more fabulous buildings, old and new, that you can shake a shitty stick at.
New York is an amazing city for impressive buildings, and whoever mentioned the view from the World Trade Centre was dead right: it was incredible. Skyscrapers are excellent  ;D.
Chicago I remember as being a mad architect's playground. They had a big fire early this century(?) and so much of the place was rebuilt from scratch, and they seem to have let the designers go beserk over there. Another top place to wander around and just gawp at the big buildings. A couple of huge skyscrapers to go up as well: Hancock and Sears tower.


QuoteThe Shambles in York - the oldest surviving Street in the UK, the buildings are so old they almost touch in the middle.

I remember those from my very first trip to the UK, a two week family vacation.
Dat geluk verdwijnt voor geld

Ahoy, Ahoy, Ahoy, Ahoy, Madison Square Garden, Wembley Arena, Ahoy, Ahoy, Ahoy.




Any takers?

Shouldn't these be in the Liverpool thread?? ;)
