The “GERMANY 5581copy” is the “Waldspirale” in Darmstadt, Germany by Friedensreich Hundertwasser (a so-called “Hundertwasserhaus”, the most famous of these is in Vienna, Austria)

I’m amazed how much more we can do with architectural photography in the digital age. You just wouldn’t get images this sharp without it. Great post.

WE NEED TO PONDER ON..WHAT IS REELISTIC..AND WHAT IS REALISTIC IN ARCHITECTURE!!!!buildings just cannot be displayed like anything,which is in contrast to the interiors..if that happens..that is called as “FALSE ARCHITECTURE”

I like the bizarre section, some architecture I have not come across before. Although I may be wrong and some of them have been heavily digitally manipulated!
