“Architecture is the scientific art of making structure express ideas. Architecture is the triumph of human imagination over materials, methods, and men to put man into possession of his own earth. Architecture is man’s great sense of himself embodied in a world of his own making. It may rise as high in quality only as its source because great art is great life.”—Frank Lloyd Wright, from the Architectural Forum, May 1930
As I toured Liverpool, London, and Glasgow, besides the beautiful, majestic historical ancient castles, palaces, and cathedrals, I was very taken with the amazing modern structures I viewed. And that is what this blog is all about – the modern architecture I was awed by! Many of them were taken as the tour bus passed and the guide rambled off what we were seeing so fast there was no way I could take a photo and write down the names of the buildings he was pointing out – and some of them I found interesting even though there was no mention of them.
