Hi everyone! I’ve always thought about what I want to do in terms of travelling in the future, so I need some help.
Send me some cities in the U.S. that have great architecture. I’ve been to many cities in the U.S., but the one that obviously stands out is Chicago. I will make a page on my blog dedicated to my own architecture bucket list.
"The hunting lodge is beautifully situated, alone beside a lake in the untouched mountain areas close to Åkrafjorden in the western part of Norway. It is accessible only by foot or horseback. The integration of the hut into the landscape has been an important part of the concept. The terrain is characteristic with grass, heather and rocks, and the hut’s shape, orientation, and materials are dictated by this. “
“In 1879, Sullivan entered the Chicago office of architect and engineer Dankmar Adler, becoming his full partner in 1883. Together, Adler and Sullivan designed nearly two hundred residential, commercial, religious, and mixed-use buildings, primarily in the Midwest. Adler and Sullivan were highly regarded not only for their robustly modern and iconoclastic architecture—which illustrated Sullivan’s dictum “form follows function”—but for Sullivan’s complex and organic ornament. Their best-known buildings include the Auditorium Building in Chicago (1886-1890); the Wainwright building in Saint Louis, Missouri (1886-1890); the Schiller Building (1891) and the Stock Exchange (1893-1894) buildings, both in Chicago; and the Guaranty building in Buffalo, New York (1894-1895). It was also during this time that Sullivan became the leibermeister of Frank Lloyd Wright, who worked for Adler and Sullivan from 1888 to 1893.”
Since I have been on tumblr the blogs included in the Architecture Spotlight have not been updated or changed (3 years guys!). Below, find my favorite architecture tumblrs, in no particular order. I have only included curators (not photographers or architecture magazines with a tumblr). Check out these tumblrs!
