I don't know why, but I've always been a little crazy for van der Rohe's Farnsworth House. It's some sort of visceral thing.

But I also love this place:



It's a steel mill. Now defunct. Here in Cleveland. Built in the 20's or so. Renovated in the 40's and again in the 50's.

And I used to love these grasshoppery things:



They are/were Hulett Ore Unloaders. They were built around 1919 for the purpose of unloading steel ore from freighters traveling along the Cuyahoga from the Upper Great Lakes. Some shortsighted arsehole developer group tore them down in 2001. There was a fight to preserve them but it didn't succeed. What's in their place now? Nothing. Just...nothing. And they call it an improvement.

Okay; I'm done.

le sacr coeur de montmartre



it's such a special building. sometimes in summer you can climb it through a very narrow staircase and walk around on the roof, from where you have a very pretty view of the city.
