Amazing Architecture: 25 of my favorites

No, I’m not an architect.  But I do have an Interior Design degree, and in the obtaining of that degree, I studied and came to love so many architects and their work.  Where I used to not have much of an opinion, I now have a great appreciation for their talent and ability. Here are 25 photographs of some of my favorite architecture.  Check out my Architecture Board on Pinterest for many more amazing architecture photos.
