This started as a display for architectural photography but I prefer to expand it to everything Architectural. Isn't it a nice interaction that gives us all inspiration and/or opens our eyes and broadens our horizons?!

Enjoy :D

Santiago Calatrava Valls is an internationally recognized and award-winning Spanish architect and structural engineer whose principal office is in Zurich, Switzerland.

Calatrava was born in Valencia, Spain, where he pursued undergraduate studies at the Architecture School and Arts and Crafts School. Following graduation in 1975, he enrolled in the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich, Switzerland for graduate work in civil engineering. In 1981, after completing his doctoral thesis, "On the Foldability of Space Frames", he started his architecture and engineering practice. Classed now among the elite designers of the world, he has offices in Zurich, Paris, New York and elsewhere.

Calatrava's early career was dedicated largely to bridges and train stations, the designs for which elevated the status of civil engineering projects to new heights. His elegant and daring Montjuic Communications Tower in Barcelona, Spain (1991) in the heart of the 1992 Olympic site was a turning point in his career, leading to a wide range of commissions. The Quadracci Pavilion (2001) of the Milwaukee Art Museum was his first major US building. Calatrava’s entry into high-rise design began with an innovative 54 storey high twisting tower, called Turning Torso (2005), located in Malmö, Sweden. Calatrava is currently designing the future train station - World Trade Center Transportation Hub - at Ground Zero in New York City.

Calatrava’s style has been heralded as bridging the division between structural engineering and architecture. In this, he continues a tradition of Spanish modernist engineering that includes Félix Candela and Antonio Gaudí. Nonetheless, his style is very personal and derives from numerous studies he makes of the human body and the natural world. source and read more…

Frank Owen Gehry is a Pritzker Prize winning architect based in Los Angeles, California.

His buildings, including his private residence, have become tourist attractions. Many museums, companies, and cities seek Gehry's services as a badge of distinction, beyond the product he delivers.

His best known works include the titanium-covered Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles, Dancing House in Prague, Czech Republic, and his private residence in Santa Monica, California, which jump-started his career, lifting it from the status of "paper architecture", a phenomenon which many famous architects have experienced in their formative decades through experimentation almost exclusively on paper before receiving their first major commission in later years.

Abbaye d'Orval is the fruit of a long history. One hundred and sixty-five million years ago, when the sea still covered our regions, the yellow ocre stone called "pierre de France" was already forming in the depths of these waters; later, it would be used in the construction of the monastery Fifteen thousand years ago the valley destined to receive the monastery was being hollowed out by the effects of the last Ice Age. Three thousand years later, the first trees began to appear, woodland pine, birch, and beech; a whole forest which man began to clear between 1800 and 1200 B.C. Was there any human habitation or village on this site before the monks settled ? At the present stage of research, nothing proves it. Only Merovingian tombs have been discovered in the surroundings of the spring. Wanna read more?

Eastern State Penitentary, Philadelphia. This was once the most well-known prison in the world. It was the result of a brainstorming session at Benjamin Franklin's house in Philadelphia. You see, at the time (the late 18th century) prisons in both the United States and in Europe were basically just holding pens where criminals were left to themselves leading to all kinds of atrocities behind prison walls. As a result of this meeting spearheaded by The Philadelphia Society for Alleviating the Miseries of Public Prisons, the Eastern State Penitentiary finally became a reality in 1829. At the time, it was the most expensive building in America and prisoners were put to work with the hope of bringing them to social and even spiritual reform (the word "penitentiary" is a result of this Quaker-inspired hope that prisoners would truly become penitent). Soon, the ESP became the model for prisons worldwide. The prison closed in 1971.
