Any piece of architecture has a number of different layers and aspects that go into it. My favorite parts and pieces of architecture are those that have very intricate details and designs that go into them, but these would be nothing without a strong foundation built around them.
Whenever I say foundation, I mean the whole structure or bones of any building. So for example on a house, I would consider the foundation the base, outside, and roof of the house. Just like any other major pieces of architectural work, the roof is a very important part of it and not only gives protection and cover, but can add beauty as well.
Not Just Homes
When I talk about beauty, I am obviously talking about buildings and pieces of work that are more than just homes. The roof of any building is extremely important and is an essential part. I have been to many places around the world and there have been buildings and structures that I can’t believe are even standing up and withstanding the laws of physics.
Now I am not an engineer or anything, but does the picture above not look real to anyone else? The amount of time, energy, research, and precision that has to go into buildings like these are absolutely mind boggling.
There really is something to say about the human race and how far we have come in a lot of different things. Architecture is no different and throughout my life I have seen countless buildings in countless countries and the amount of absolute beauty that I feel is ignored around the world is astounding. I don’t think many people stop and appreciate different architecture like I do and not many really understand what really goes into these majestic creations.
As I look through the books and books I have of photographs I have taken around the world it astounds me how much time and energy has gone into so many architectural masterpieces all around the world. Aside from the more famous examples like the Taj Mahal, not many people would be able to name another piece of work.
What I love so much about architecture is that there is so much more that goes into these buildings other than just structural engineering, but so much passion and love as a form of art as well. Whenever I see a building from a distance I can always tell what kind of style it is going to be when I get up close to it and I am never not amazed at the intricate details that go into these buildings.
Even here in America around bigger cities you can see the intensity in detail that a lot of under appreciated buildings display.
