I live in Chicago, and when anyone comes to visit, my favorite “tourist” thing to do is go on the Architecture Boat Tour.
It’s really incredible hearing the stories of how the buildings of this sprawling, towering city came to be, and to experience them at such a close scale.
It’s a similar kind of wonder to what I feel just scrolling through the corners of Reddit devoted to admiring his craft. Let’s look at some now, shall we?
That would be an incredible place to live.
14. Kazan, Russia
Ironic that a tree should be made of steel.
13. Mexico City
Such an enormous brightness to it!
12. Czech Republic
As tree fates go, I’d say this one kinda won the lottery.
I certainly feel more enlightened just looking at it, thank you.
10. Chengdu, China
I think the most mind-blowing part about this is that there’s still such a thing as a bookstore.
You can almost feel it moving.
8. Kansas City, Missouri
Hey, that’s my hometown! Represent!
Step right into history and enjoy.
You’re in good hands now.
5. Budapest, Hungary
You da best, Budapest.
4. Seattle, Washington
Quirky as you’d expect it to be.
3. Tel Aviv, Israel
So modern and yet so timeless.
2. Brussels, Belgium
The definition of cozy.
1. Isfahan, Iran
Nothing to do but look up in wonder.
There’s an awful lot of work and talent out there. It’s nice to sit back and appreciate it sometimes.
