something worth looking at
splinters and bruises cuts and pain.
Beauty in itself.

I think architecture is beautiful.

Architecture is beautiful. I think my ex boyfriend has something to do with crunching numbers for something pertainting to it.
I won’t lie to you. I don’t know what I’m supposed to write about the word ‘architecture’. Architecture has always kind of fascinated me. The way buildings go up, how they are built. How they are designed, especially. I could never name a famous architect or point out his work, but I could definitely look at a building and say, Wow.

what it takes to build a building, lay down the bones, have a plan, develop it and create something that lasts, and is free standing
something with real weight and place… a real purpose. to this u are godlike and controlling with success and forititue

The architecture of the run down barn and the rotting wood and the scent of hay and they way the dust dances in the sun around your face. Moments on red, dirt roads, only ever moments with you I know

I’ve always found architecture to be interesting. It’s neat how people can take something as simple as a building meant to serve a specific purpose. And then embellish it. I really enjoy creative buildings.

One of my best friends got accepted to architecture school at UT. Everyone knows he’s going to be so succuessful. He was our valedictorian of my class also in highschool. I also dated him…

Such a simple thing, architecture. Yet, a perfect way to describe how everything is. There is nothing without architecture.; Nothing without planning, and at least some kind follow through. Only architecture… Beauty.

It looks dark and gothic in some places. The older parts of town have a sinister look to their dutch-styled roofs and southern inspired paneling. It brings cities together and separates cultures. Order would be impossible without its iconic diversity. Thanks architechture.

The skies would fall flat on the ground without the man-made horizon to separate it.
gorgeous white house with modern decor. clean lines. large backyard. breath. smile.

architecture: one of the most beautiful things existing in this planet. the buildings that we see and view; all around us, living and breathing pieces of art that we use each day. in my fantasy world this would be my major. if my school offered it and i actually believed that i would succeed in so.

It was beautiful. Clearly ancient Roman, from when the empire was at it’s peak. It was one hell of a discovery for an amateur archaeologist.
By Ellie URL on 05.29.2012
Landscape medlies of earth and sound, and lines all up and down and everything in terms of habitual necessity, beauty and living sing song gardens. It is the breath of a new age, of skyscraping haze and cerebral craze that raises shades afront inhibition.

Architecture is buildings. Creating unimaginable things that amaze the human eye. It keeps life interesting, and makes cities spectacular. By seeing incredible architecture, it enhances your experience and broadens your experiences into new horizons.
By Rachel Hutton on 05.29.2012
giants and buildings will falll and architecture will be forgotten. the end of the world is an unmoveable object. to think we could have any chance would be simply idiotic of us fools. life will be raw, returning to the earliest years of this earths own life. as if, time travel, through architecture? the possibility’s of the human mind. what will become of it? is our fate the same as the giants fate or that buildings fate? or are we truly an intelligent race? questions. questions. questions?

mazes of metal fences. borders of wire in the sky. metal beams of entrapment… metal caves of depression..we build our own cages…….demolish.

the mastery to build those high vaulted arches
By Lucinda on 05.29.2012
There is an order to everything. This was a lesson Michael learned during his first days as a student of architecture. Buildings and houses are like sentences, they are made up of many simple elements who’s interaction expands its individual characteristics and makes the whole something incredible. He could say the same of life.

I wanted to become an architecture when i was younger, but then i didnt like the idea of doing everything on the computer. Instead i liked drawing the actual concepts and designing on paper that way i can say i drew it and this is my work all on a piece of paper with a pencil. art work. Something that took a lot of effort and creativity.

same old foam soft drab laying walls, the kind along the inside of my room, resting against the window sucking in all the air, suns and mouths and whatnots, bugs in from the summer, the same old blue walls
By Aviv on 05.29.2012
I first got interested in architecture from The Fountainhead. Architecture is about how you want to see the world. It is all about creativity. You make what you imagine. It’s like you own the world if you’re an architecture because you get to decide what kind of place people will live in.
By Mehnaz on 05.29.2012
I like eccentric architecture. Objects that bend to their environment and twist to fit the indvidual needs of their particular users. Hundertwasser and Gaudi avoided straight lines and developed styles that set them apart from the crowd. You can look at one of their buldings and KNOW who designed them. Trees on the roof – why not? Towers side by side and completely unalke – why not? Who came up with the rule that buildings must be symmetrical, linear and – boring? Why should all the windows be the same size and sit n a line?
By Betty Barker on 05.29.2012
This is something that is all around is. We take it for granted. Its high, low, inside and outside. Its all around the world, and like most things, its different every where we go. Architecture creates beauty in places you wouldn’t necessarily class as ‘beautiful’. Homes, churches. Beauty all around us.
By Emma Taylor on 05.30.2012
Done with lots of creativity and the knowledge of physics cause you cant have a pretty looking building thats gonna collapse on you the moment you set foot into it can you? I would like to think of architecture as a blend of aesthetic pleasure as well as safety.

The architecture of the derelict cathedral was drab and empty. These churches were never built for this, they were never worshiped in or held in high-esteem. Instead, they were used for drunken celebrations and pagan ceremonies. If home is where the heart is, then this place is not home.
By Tyler Nordhausen on 05.30.2012
Ted was an architecture professor in How I Met Your Mother. I fucking love that show! And Marshall and Lily had their baby oh my god! BARNEY AND ROBIN GET MARRIED.
By Britta on 05.30.2012
The house looked so massive when I was a child, now it just makes me sad. Small and rundown is not the way I remembered it.
By Casie URL on 05.30.2012
It’s all about fine lines, careful drawing, no smudges, no mistakes. Insane precision. Perfect models. All beautifully prepared. But don’t get emotionally attached to what you create; it can be torn apart in seconds.

Architecture is art on a grand scale.
By Tim URL on 05.30.2012
I couldn’t navigate the simple architecture of my obvious desires. Embedded in me since the day I was born and only built upon by my father’s selfish hands. In order to move ahead I needed to deconstruct the blueprints of my mind. Now where to start?
By Ruben URL on 05.30.2012
the majestic building with the flowing towers sat in the distance as she watched her love walk out of her life. How can this be? It was only yesterday that they had been sitting under the cherry blossoms sharing their most intimate thoughts
By Natalie on 05.30.2012
beautiful.. yet confusing.
By mahleekah URL on 05.30.2012
I already did this word….And this time went a lot faster. As I sat over here trying to think of something to talk about regarding architecture. I talked about Spain and Italy if you where wondering. Ha ha
By Cyanide URL on 05.30.2012
the way we construct our world, what we have in our brains spilled out on the streets. the magic and the absurdness of human existence displayed for everyone to see. contrasting cultures show themselves to their Gods.
By Maria URL on 05.30.2012
Ah, interesting! my dad was an architect for most of his life…..it wasn’t his first job but it was definitely his last. he just retired this past year after working for the department of veterans affairs for 25 years. crazy right? now he’s always at home and I can’t even do all the things I want to…that’s why I gotta move to richmond asap! i really hope I get into vcu…and that I don’t have to live in a dorm….womp
