Modern Architecture in Great Britain

“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.

Iona Nunnery and St. Ronan’s Chapel

Iona Nunnery is on the Isle of Iona in the Inner Hebrides Islands in Scotland. If you like medieval ruins this one is simply awe-inspiring.  Here are some photographs from my visit.  I also visited the Iona Abbey, but I will save those for another day.

OYGIF – Italian Market – Skywatch

Last month I took a bus tour to the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. After visiting the wonderful exhibition of Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso paintings we stopped at Mazzaro’s Italian Market. Here are some photos of the delightful array of food, buildings, and zany vehicles. And, being Friday, be sure to visit Orange You Glad Its Friday to see more stories, and pictures full of orange!
