Structural love.

I have a bit of a nerdy secret... I absolutely love buildings!!! Old, new, straight or wonky, something about them just draws me in. I wonder what the designer was thinking during the design process, did aesthetics  come before function or is it a wonderful combination of both?   Today, I would like to share a few images from my time in Dubai.



I love the straight lines of this old building. It was constructed for beauty and function - the slim colums send up heat and keep the inside really cool, even during the hottest periods. The markings outside this old library are reproduced a few times around the building and I wish I knew what they meant.  Simplicity and beauty!!!


And to end this post, how about something cute that you probably don't see so often.
