It’s time once again for a Saturday exploration into the always fascinating world of architecture. Both of today’s selections are from TBB neophyte Erwin te Kortschot (buildingmaster 1966), who has a very small but high quality stable of models on Flickr. We begin today’s ruminations with an 1898 Art Nouveau structure and National Heritage Site from Rotterdam, Netherlands called the “Witte Huis“. Designed by architect Willem Molenbroek, it is considered the first high-rise of Europe.
Don’t blink, because our tour ends as quickly as it began in Oxford, England, with the Radcliffe Camera designed by James Gibbs in the English Palladian style in 1749 to house the Radcliffe Science Library.
If you’re a fan of the genre don’t miss Erwin’s outstanding Aloha Tower from Honolulu Harbor in Hawaii.
Get small with me and enjoy “City View“, tonight’s offering of Microscale scenery courtesy of Paul Wellington (Luap31). This model is another fine addition to the builder’s sprawling Brickville project.
Joe Klang (-derjoe-) has been busy building a city. Here’s a shot. It’s no secret I like realistic street scenes, so it’s no surprise I love this shot.
Patrick Bosman is building a city too:
I’m usually not one for this style architecture in buildings (I appreciate the style—it’s just not my favorite). This build, though caught my eye. Eltsac Castle has posted this lovely Modern Modular. I like the color scheme, and the relative simplicity.
