No debate just serious talk. Don't punt it to EE.

Anyway, let's talk about architecture. Personally I really have a thing for Gothic architecture. I absolutely love the fact that New Jersey is littered with Gothic style buildings.

My old highschool was designed in that way, I loved the look of it.

I know it has nothing on a lot of other Gothic style buildings but I like it.

Also say what you want about Catholics and Muslims but their churches and mosques are pretty nice looking.

A church in my town, the pictures do it no justice really.

And the Blue Mosque at Istanbul. Absolutely beautiful.

which were most likely converted from old Pagan temples.

Sort of like how the Cathedral of Cordoba was a Roman temple then a Catholic church then a Mosque and then finally a Catholic church. The blue Mosque though is original IIRC.

my high school was red brick.. midland texas style... completely different from the architecture of the school you went to. hmm here is downtown https://www.redwingaerials.com/images/740_740_MKT_MIDLAND_IMG_1839.jpgwe call it the tall shitty. ;D
there is a large lack of gothic architecture in west america - as it is the "new world"

Cleopatras needle, sphinx, amazonian tribal architecture, some medieval castles.

I think Georgian style houses are perfect though.

I'll see if I can get some pictures of a friend's house.

He's a retired architect, disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright.
His home is beautifully laid out for living in, rather than to look cool in Architectural Digest photos.
Between Wright's Fallingwater and Tazz's postmodern example above, but laid out with a hexagonal/equilateral triangle motif.

He's a rather private fellow, though.

Thread approved for 'serious talk.' Section doesn't have to be all about religion and politics. Trial sticky.

Blech:

Lakewood City Hall

The garden's nice, but the architecture just looks...unfinished. And that vet's memorial? So...Soviet.

^ I think it looks tidy and spartan. Good natural lighting, too. I wouldn't mind using such a building as an office.
