Wonderful Architecture Around the World

The Art Nouveau ‘Gran Hotel Ciudad De México’, 1899, by French Architect, Jacques Grüber

My brother Bob just sent me this link:


In contrast to most of what we see out out in the world, there is good architecture here and there. A stunning collection — 50 examples.

I can’t find attribution for this photo, which is on Reddit, and widely elsewhere. Always credit the photographer, people!

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:
