Thanks to Beaty, Roberts, and Abrams for allowing me to share this story.

Architecture is such a fun way to interact with the world. With each building, we get to look at the history of what was happening when it was built, the people who built it, the stories they told, where they lived, how they lived, what elements they used in construction (physical and stylistic), how they put them all together, and what influences the design.

For some brilliant architectural creations, look for the Bilbao Guggenheim, the Djenné mosque, Egyptian pyramids, Stonehenge, Chartres cathedral, the Taj Mahal, the Dubai tower, Angkor Wat, the Forth Bridge, the Sydney Opera House, Eiffel Tower, Chaco Canyon, Machu Picchu, Valle de los Caídos, and the Sears Tower.

There are many others, so if you think of a good example, please post it below.
