Beautiful seclusion, marred by a glass house. Wood faked, plastic mould of real life.

I looked up at the house and tried not to make a face. It was not what I had pictured as my first house. The style was all wrong. Glancing over, I could see how happy he was. Maybe I could get over my dream of living in a Victorian home… or at least tuck it away a little while longer.

Passion. This is how i feel about the matter. Without This, what would we be? what would our world be? An ugly, tacky, mess? or even more of an expressive place? Good question me.. good question.

I like the old architecture that gives a glimpse of the past. It is so beautiful and lets me see what people in the past thought of as new and innovative. I love it! Arches are my favorite.

The skyscrapers really seems to scrape the sky she thought as she gazed up at the buildings at the corner of 5th avenue and 38th street. As the clouds passed overhead, the tips seemed to draw lines in the clouds the same way her fingertips drew lines in the water when she let them hang lazily over the side of the boat on summer afternoons. How different her life had become since those days in the sun, exhausted from hours clinging for dear life as an inner tube bounced against waves and running up and down the stairs to the top of her boathouse just to expereince the seconds of pure weightlessness as she lept into the water.

architecture is amazing there is nothing like it there are no boundaries the limits of this beautiful art expand every day

Why is it that making decisions is so hard? It is as if each choice is breaking new ground, growing a new architecture that I will be forced to live inside for eternity, the walls and spaces of the structure constantly growing and freezing and hardening around me.

It is beautiful. It is a window to the past. It is wonderful. I love old architecture. Even just from 1800s in DC and other cities.
Architecture has never really interested me, I don’t know many famous Architects… Maybe Brunnel… He built a bridge that time, I think. … Buildings can be nice, on the right day.

Architecture is amazing. It’s a beautiful art of combining imagination with reality to make dreams come true. Various places have various kinds of architecture to suite their needs.Therefore, architecture speaks millions of the inhabitants of a place. As the world becomes a melting pot of cultures and technology is becoming more and more vivid, Building are going to come straight from our wildest dreams.

Buildings so tall and so round. They scrape the sky and pierce the heavens with marvelous love. We never really think about the art behind buildings but they truly are an ancient modern marvel of human creativity at its best. The fountainhead represents an interesting look at the architect studies.
By Brock Gates URL on 05.30.2012
Oh the grand old buildings. They fly into the sky, blocking the very sun itself. Stonework has a story to tell. Hands shaped these buildings; hands of men that are long gone, with their own stories to tell.

The triangles and broken rectangles of your body, sheeted in some places, broken in others. Crumbled concrete around your knees and rubber pipping as your bones. No one built you very well.
By polly on 05.30.2012
Architecture is something that is an integral testament of human creativity. It is the art of efficiently modelling buildings. Designing buildings is something that has been done for thousands of years.

My friend Eric wants to be an architect. He already took a course in it and I can imagine him to be very good at it. Is this crazy kind of guy who likes design and so on.

The home you have built, the things you have surrounded yourself with. Everything reflects your personality. The steps that lead to your door, the archway through which I walk.

I used to want to be an architect. It was an interest of mine. I know the man who designed and directed the building of the Petronas towers. Pretty impressive architecture right? I thought so. Really inspired me to want the world to be full of beautifully designed and constructed buildings. A dream is a wish your heart makes.

The room stunk of ancient ruins, it was built 30 years before I was born and certainly had not aged to a grace of famous roman ruins. I walked in slightly shocked by its ungraceful feel, it was shrinking I think thing because the ceiling now touched my head.

Architecture is pretty cool. It’s buildings and such. Awesome. I don’t know.
By Lindy on 05.30.2012
The houses here. They are built like castles. It’s like they have been lost in time. Decayed, broken, worn out. They could have been great some day. They would have been great one day. If only, if only, someone cared enough to take care of them. If only, if only, someone would have saved them.
By Alyssa Jane on 05.30.2012
The buildings were so tall, and beautiful.How could someone imagine such beauty for a buliding with merely offices in it. Shouldn’t this beautiful structure be saved for something so marvelous it could no be ignored, maybe the castle of God perhaps.

The Doctor and Melody Amelia stepped out of the TARDIS.
“Okay, Time-Lord, where are we this time?” Melody asked.
“Hmm…judging by the architecture we are…on Earth, 2012!”
“Really? Where on Earth?” Melody asked.
“We’re in London!” the Doctor said.
Melody smiled. “Brilliant!”

Sometimes when I walk the street of my city, I wonder at its architecture ugliness. I imagine a group of people coming from different ages building a city that doesn’t match and doesn’t get pretty.
By Karim Rizkallah on 05.30.2012
I don’t know much about architecture, other than Greek and Roman architecture that has been discussed in class. It doesn’t really fascinate me, but I do sometimes notice unique architecture and can recognize it’s origins.

Nach der Wende sah man in der ehemaligen DDR noch sehr viel sogenannte Plattenbauten. Heute dürfte einiges davon verschwunden sein, wenn auch noch nicht alles. Die Wohnungen hatten den Vorteil, dass das Schleppen der Kohle entfiel, da es erstmals zentrale Heizungen gab.

Desgining buildings that have a proper space management is important. However, it is also important to maintain a certain amount of design in mind in order to make it creative and appealing. Architects also need to have in mind that this is an ever growing population and that more sustainable projects will have to be used in order to maintain a green project.
By Diego on 05.30.2012
The building was all right angles and steep slopes. Harsh, unforgiving. So many flat planes, so many unfeeling right angles. It gave me shivers just to look at it.
/What kind of people imprison themselves behind such walls? What sort of people dream of making their homes in such a style?/
I sighed to myself, missing the sweeping angles and curves of my home.

“Building are a fleeting thing. Soon there will be no need for a “physical” space. The grandest architecture shall be of the mind! We will build numerous, vast worlds.”

I saw the lines grow neatly into a structure on the paper, the structure suddenly coming out from the sheets, the metal skeleton taking on the concrete and glass skin, looking like it had grown out of the landscape around it. The humans inhabited it, thought in awe what hands may have given birth to those lines, which now surround them as walls and ground under their feet, wondering what mind could make something so beautiful that one felt awed to look at the monster, to live in it, work in it. Stood below a group of people, with blank sheets of paper in their hands, looking in at more spaces where onto they could create more of these, each new and different from the previous, yet each a mark of the creators, of what they wish to see people in. Someone walked up to them, and asked them who they were, and they replied – “We are, Architects of life, Architects for Life.”

I was in France for the first time and I was in awe at the beautiful architecture. Marvelous flats and businesses. The structure. Everything was just like I imagined. No, better.
