Amazing Architecture for November 10, 2009

November 10, 2009 at 10:12 pm Leave a comment

There has been quite a crop of wonderful posts across the web related to interesting and amazing buildings and architecture this week. Everything from an apartment building that floats to what happens to your house as the result of a nuclear bomb!

I would like to start with a personal preference a post on Spotcoolstuff.com (http://travel.spotcoolstuff.com/shopping/worlds-best-bookstores) which is all about the world’s coolest looking bookstores.

Next we go from one religion (books certainly count!) to another where we have some amazing churches in a post on Neatorama.com (http://www.neatorama.com/2007/05/07/10-divinely-designed-churches/)

Now from a new site to me, Boredpanda.com( http://www.boredpanda.com/top-33-worlds-strangest-buildings/) we have a collection of some oldies but goodies as far as weird and wonderful buildings go as well as a few new ones.  I especially like the Lotus Temple in Delphi India!

We also have a concept project potentially to be built in the Netherlands that is a floating apartment building.  The information comes from Designboom.com (http://www.designboom.com/weblog/cat/9/view/7316/waterstudio-nl-the-citadel-water-apartment-complex.html) and the concept looks pretty neat.  I can imagine a usefulness in a country that is below sea level where floating buildings might someday be very necessary!

Lastly tonight we have from a favorite site of mine, Weburbanist (http://weburbanist.com/2009/11/08/blown-to-smithereens-the-secret-story-of-survival-town/) we have the story of Survival town or what happens to your building in the face of a nuclear attack!  A single picture can’t do the sight justice so I really encourage you to click the link above and go through the entire post.
