A #verona , vive e lavora la famiglia Cancian. Da oltre sei generazioni questa #famiglia , a me molto cara, diffonde #cultura realizzando artigianalmente l'antica tecnica del terrazzo alla veneziana. Mi capita così di scoprire, aprendo un vecchio portone, che lo stesso #pavimento che impreziosisce i negozi e gli alberghi piu esclusivi del mondo, trova posto nell'autorimessa del capostipite di famiglia!
Solo in #italia !
This photo was taken at Shakhrisabz, which is labeled as an ancient city but TBH the most ancient part we saw were these two remnants of the old palace. The rest of the palace complex looked more like a modern park. It was a bit disappointing, given we took a day trip from Samarkand for it (it’s about a two-hour drive each way) and if I knew this in hindsight I wouldn’t have gone but at least we got some nice fresh air haha.
Everywhere you go, you can see architectural concepts and forms. Integrating this type of accent and principle of design made the facade of Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 interesting to look at.
"CAUTION: MEN AT WORK!" Captured this picture of two men at work on a cloudy day, through the electric fence wires which created the abstract imagery on the building and hazy reflection of the clouds made it more artistic!

When I was 14 and I decided to become an architect (still in progress 😂) , I met a mom of my friend on the street. She asked me what had I decided to do in my future and I told her about architecture. She said: “Yeah, architecture is interesting, but today people have only grey concrete and it’s so boring“.
I had no idea about contemporary architecture at all😅, but I didn’t pay any attention to her words. Now I know for sure, that architecture nowadays is more exciting than ever🖤.
We can do so much more than our ancestors, we think so much further than people used to think, we can build unreal constructions with new materials, we can use robots to analyze the space and build new form based on this analysis, we can plan transformative spaces and bring more and more functions in the room 🚀.
Does it really seems so, that all we have is grey concrete?
P.S. and I’m so glad I didn’t believe her 😂
Here the work of Vardy meets that of James ‘Athenian’ Stuart. The lower part of the well is Vardy’s while Stuart was responsible for the upper part, was intended to give the impression of a Greek temple interior with festive garlands threaded between the Ionic pilasters.
The stone cantilevered stairs have an unusual balustrade of cut sheet metal, painted in trompe l’oeil to represent festoon drapery. Stuart very successfully incorporated Vardy’s Venetian window, a Palladian motif, into his staircase scheme.
