I dont know too much about the specifics of architecture, styles or specific architects. But it is an interesting subject. One of my favorite parts of visiting a new place is to see the different architectual styles. Like in Europe how places so close together look so completely different. Architectually one of my favorite places is Amsterdam. Id love to go to Rome or Venice someday.

I considered majoring in architecture back when I was in high school, but never really took it seriously. It was just one of the careers on my lists that interested me, but ended up choosing something else. I remember taking ap art, and my focus was buildings and landscape. Not exactly architecture, but showed my interest in buildings

walt disney music hall in LA.. my favorite building in LA.. designed by frank gehry

wen u walk thru the building, its like the walls are engulfing u.. and from every angle.. goin up n down the stairs and walking thru the pathways, it looks amazing.. i was constantly being amazed the whole time i was there.

My favorite architecture of all time would be the Forbidden City in China. I love the idea of a huge palace surrounded by water.
