witty.

I would prefer to look at a cathedral like that than a converted barn with frankly dangerous stairs and an overpolished wooden floor.

The design in those cathedrals is phenomenal, the use of buttressing to support masses that just shouldn't be feasible whilst still looking amazing, and all done before some fancy bit of software was even thought about.

I also like Victorian public buildings :


especially town halls :
Birmingham

Sheffield

Manchester

We don't build things like this anymore.

The Natural History Museum is awesome.

Theatres are another one. I like anything that doesn't look new really, i'm not a fan of all this glass and metal and minimulism.

Nice, those types of arcade were pretty common at one time, they still have some in Leeds :


but for the full effect you need to go to Milan :

Isn't it odd how buildings effect your mood ?
They are just bricks and mortar afterall.
