    In Miami I think the Bacardi building is interesting



    When I lived in Chicago I loved walking around downtown a lot of interesting buildings; Wrigley, Marshall Fields and went to school at IIT for awhile which was done by Mies van der Rohe.



    The SC Johnson Co campus was originally done by Frank Lloyd Wright and is really cool it is in Racine WI.



    Also loved to stop by the Bahai temple in Evanston IL

    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

    Watched a program once about the SC Johnson place. Apparently it leaks like a sieve.



    The louvre's glass pyramid that is the "new" front entrance to the building. It's an amazing mix of old and new. What's really amazing is the amount of additional museum space that is under the courtyard and has been added since the construction of the original building (former palace).

    The Frederic C. Hamilton building, part of the Denver Art Museum.

    Just love the way the building slopes. Nevermind that there's so much useless space inside the building...

    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    AND FINALLY one of my very favorite interior designs...a bit minimal, contemporary, and maybe nice to 'visit' but not live in..

    Sorry for not posting a photo but here is a link. http://www.sightline.org/publication...ricetags18.pdf
    Scroll down to the Qube. It was the home of West Coast Transmission in Vancouver and was novel as the body was suspended from the center elevator shaft. It isn't big or all that edgy by todays standard, but it was in its day.

    The Frist in Nashville:





    The Getty in L.A.:



    I'm not usually into the weirdies, but we rent office space from the architect who built a local favorite:
    “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
    ― Muhammad Ali
