Architecture is a craft that has an incredible impact on our daily lives. The houses that make up our neighborhood, the buildings that surround our office environment, the transport systems buildings that we frequent, all have an effect on our emotions. We may not realize this because we are caught up in our routines. However, a structure and its lines, materials that are used, colors that are displayed, all create emotional signals that we digest, be it consciously or sub-consciously.
Many of us can name a solid list of renowned buildings around the world, those that are part of the tourism of their particular city. Many less of us can name the architects that created these masterpieces. Meanwhile, once we are informed we are often surprised at what other marvels those architects have created. For this reason I love this animation of a handful of the world’s most iconic architectural works. It is called the “ABCs of Architecture” and was created by Frederico Gonzalez. Have a look below.
