A different and strange construction.
These stairs in an 18 Century palace in Naples show pure elegance. The dynamic and curved shapes of the construction and of the railings, create a unique and almost swan-shaped harmony of lines.
White WomenHossein Farahani
The Umrah is an Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, performed by Muslims. Pilgrim women have changed their regular clothes to special white ones in Miqat Dhul Hulifa Bir Ali which is a historical mosque near Medina. changing the clothes and being ready for pilgrimage is part of this ritual. This is a big interaction between people and architecture.
Working OvertimeBeverly Jay
I felt I was watching a beautiful choreographed scene set against the setting sun. The workers movements and positions were almost as though they were performing a dance, notice too, they all used their safety lines, which adds to the strength of the image.
Urban MountainHamed Younesi
Baku is a city with beautiful architecture, With different and modern elements that become a great architecture by the hand of Zaha Hadid. One of her great works is this building which is a cultural center.
From a normal view, this is just another staircase but by getting on your back and looking right up, you can get a completely unique perspective that leaves the mind wondering what the photo is actually of.
I just like the fact its a self-supporting structure, a concrete tripod and that its possible to take in some very nice views while having a beer or coffee on the observation floor. The original tower was destroyed.
Casa ConfettiHans Wichmann
Modern architecture can be very colourful. The colours of the passer-by are wonderfully repeated on the upper floors.
