| midtown | • The Midtown Center is a u-shaped building in the heart of Washington DC, designed by SHoP Architects from NYC who created a clean corner structure with a very special courtyard. Diagonal bridges connecting the upper levels of the building and separating the view from the ground level to the sky into very nice geometric shapes. For natural lighting the facade is sheathed in glass to enable equivalent working conditions in each part of the building. Copper accents with a green patina as vertical panels bringing back a fairly traditional DC construction material to it‘s facade. • • Architect: SHoP Architects, New York, New York, USA @shoparchitects User: Fannie Mae (financial service provider) • • Location: 1500 L St NW, Washington DC, IS Usage: mixed-used office building Size: 14 storys, 865.000 sq ft (80.361 sq m) Construction: steel Surfaces: glass, copper Finished: 2018 • • #washington #washingtondc #1_unlimited #archi_focus_on #archilovers #archdaily #tv_pointofview #tv_leadinglines #arkiromantix #designboom #tv_buildings #architecture_hunter #archi_features #architectanddesign #ig_ometry #glassatecture #architecture_minimal #arkiminimal #skyscraping_architecture #sky_high_architecture #minimal_lookup #lookingup_architecture #buildingswow #architecture_view #architecturedose #architecture #geometric #symmetry #copper #design

| circle layer | • The Javits Center is a large convention center located on Eleventh Street in Hell‘s Kitchen in New York City. With a total space of 1.800.000 sq ft (170.000 sqm) the displayed highlight of this mega structure is the glass entrance hall. Constructed as a space frame structure of steel and glass the design became revolutionary and controversial at once.

| tempodrom | • The Tempodrom used to be an alternative event venue in a circus tent next to the Berlin Wall, developed by Irene Moessinger, a cultural manager and former squatter in Berlin. After the relocation in 1985 to the Berlin Tiergarten a new Tempodrom was developed and was opened in 2001 constructed in concrete and todays shape. The silhouette of a circus tent with similarities to Oscar Niemeyers cathedral in Brasília remained. The roof construction is made of steel and the arena below has space for 4.000 people. In the groundlevel is a great designed spa, called the Liquidrom. • • Architects: Doris Schäffler & Stephan Schütz, employees of Gherkan, Marg and Partner (GMP), Hamburg, Germany User: Tempodrom Betriebsgesellschaft mbH & Co.

| atrium | • The New York Marriott Marquis is a hotel designed by John Portman & Associates architects, located in the Times Square area on Broadway and opened in 1985. The most remarkable element of the building is the atrium which starts at the lobby in the 8 floor. A massive column rails the elevators to connect each floor of the 175 m (574 ft) high building. The high-tech elevator system, supplied by @schindler_group, is one of the earliest installation of destination dispatch, with reduced travel time and efficiency by assigning passengers to elevator cars according to their destination floor. The hotel also includes the second highest restaurant in NYC, a revolving round restaurant at the 48 floor. • • Architect: John Portman & Associates, Atlanta, Georgia, USA @portman_architects User: New York Marriott Marquis @mhmarquisnyc • • Location: 1535 Broadway, New York, New York, USA Usage: hotel Size: height 175 m (574 ft), 51 floors, 171.390 sqm (1.844.800 sq ft), 16 elevators Construction: steel frame Finished: 1985 • • #newyorkcity #nyc #seeyourcity #1_unlimited #archi_focus_on #symmetryhunters #tv_buildings #archilovers #archdaily #skyscraping_architecture #tv_pointofview #lookingup_architecture #archi_features #modernarchitect #architecture_view #arquitecturamx #designboom #tv_leadinglines #arkiminimal #architectanddesign #architects_need #jj_geometry #architecture_minimal #architecturedose #architecture_hunter #ig_ometry #ptk_architecture #raw_architecture #architecture #hotel

| colonnade | • The well known modernist architect and director of the Bauhaus Mies van der Rohe designed three rather unknown residential buildings in Newark, New Jersey, in the late 1950‘s. The displayed building is called Colonnade Apartments, a 22 storey solitaire surrounded by (car) parks and designed in the so called International Style, or Le Corbusier style, which advocated dense high-rise housing complexes set within parks and open spaces. The complex was sold in 2018 and is still in affordable residential usage. • • Architect: Ludwig Mies van der Rohe • • Location: Clifton Ave, Newark, New Jersey, USA Usage: residential Size: 59.13 m (194 ft), 22 floors, 6 lifts Construction: reinforced concrete Façade: glass, steel Finished: 1960 • • #newark #miesvanderrohe #bauhaus #1_unlimited #archi_focus_on #glassatecture #tv_buildings #tv_pointofview #tv_leadinglines #sky_high_architecture #archilovers #archdaily #skyscraping_architecture #lookingup_architecture #archi_features #modernarchitect #architecture_view #arquitecturamx #buildingswow #architectanddesign #architects_need #architecture_minimal #architecturedose #architecture_hunter #ptk_architecture #raw_architecture #architecture #geometric #buildings #urban

| mexican columns | • The embassy of Mexico in Berlin is situated next to the famous Tiergarten (city forest and park) and designed by the well known mexican architects Teodoro González de León and Francisco Serrano. The most striking feature of this building is the entrance facade: an 18-metre-high screen, consisting of 40 partly inclined pillars. Cast in white concrete with a content of marble ­chippings, these elements have a rough bush-hammered finish and are enclosed at the top and sides by a concrete framing structure. ­Behind this outer layer, a glass ­facade extends over the full height of the building, allowing views into the interior. From the entrance, ­visitors proceed to a circular atrium, the visible surfaces of which are also in the white concrete that is characteristic of this building. • • Design Architects: Teodoro González de León and Francisco Serrano, Mexico General planning and project management: Assmann Beraten + Planen, Berlin, Germany User: Embassy of Mexico • • Location: Klingelhöferstr. 3, Berlin, Germany Usage: embassy Size: ground 30 x 45 m, height 18 m, 40 concrete columns Construction: reinforced concrete Façade: exposed concrete, glass Finished: 2000 • In frame: @george__franklin#berlin #mexico #visit_berlin #berlingram #1_unlimited #tv_buildings #archilovers #archdaily #arkiminimal #ig_ometry #skyscraping_architecture #tv_pointofview #lookingup_architecture #archi_features #modernarchitect #architecture_view #arquitecturamx #buildingswow #tv_leadinglines #architects_need #architectanddesign #minimalism #architecture_minimal #architecturedose #architecture_hunter #designboom #ptk_architecture #raw_architecture #architecture #arquitectura

| court | • The Amtsgericht Mitte (district court) of Berlin is a representative building with aspects of Jugendstil (art nouveau) constructed between 1896 and 1904. The displayed main hall with its vertical connecting staircases, slim profiled columns and galleries is completed by a appealing designed dome in the shape of a cloverleaf. Yellow and red sandstone, a red flooring and rose ceiling are providing a warm gesture of the entree.

| metrorail | • The Metrorail, or Metro, is the subway system in Washington DC, connecting the American capital with the Washington Metropolitan area. The system was opened in 1976 and with a length of 213 km it is the second longest subway system in the US. Designed by the American architect Harry Weese the curved concrete ceilings became iconic. Four different precasted concrete patterns providing a brutalist similarity between all stations in the system. As displayed in the image a light rail in the middle axis illuminates the ceiling and is partly being blocked by the trains, providing great light effects. • • Architect: Harry Weese Associates, Chicago, Illinois, USA User: Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority @metroforward • • Location: L‘Enfant Plaza Metro, Washington DC, USA Usage: subway station Numbers: 213 km total system lenght, 19 m below street level, two platforms Construction: reinforced concrete Façade: precasted concrete panels Finished: 1976 • • #washingtondc #1_unlimited #archilovers #archdaily #tv_pointofview #tv_leadinglines #tv_buildings #symmetryhunters #architecture_hunter #modernarchitect #architectanddesign #brutal_architecture #visualambassadors #architecture_minimal #skyscraping_architecture #archi_features #lookingup_architecture #ig_ometry #jj_geometry #architecture_view #buildingswow #beaplha #ptk_architecture #arquitecturamx #architecture #geometric #symmetry #design #concrete #brutalism

| beekman | • The Temple Court Building in Beekman Street / Nassau Street in New York City was built between 1881 and 1883, planned by the architects Silliman and Farnsworth to originally attract lawyers as tenants. The last tenant moved out in 2001 and the vacant building got sold to investors changing the usage to a hotel. The now existing Beekman Hotel was opened in 2016. The buildings most noteworthy feature is the displayed atrium, rising 9 storeys from the ground level to a pyramidal glass ceiling. Warm colors and wrought-iron railings provide the charming character of the late 19’s century. • • Architect: Silliman and Farnsworth User: The Beekman Hotel & Residences @thebeekmanny • • Location: 123 Nassau Street, New York City, USA Usage: hotel Size: 9 storeys (10 in annex) Construction & façade: steel, red Philadelphia bricks, tan Dorchester stone, terra cotta above a two storey granite base Finished: 1883 (hotel in 2016) • • #newyorkcity #seeyourcity #1_unlimited #archi_focus_on #symmetryhunters #tv_buildings #ig_ometry #archilovers #archdaily #skyscraping_architecture #tv_pointofview #lookingup_architecture #archi_features #modernarchitect #architecture_view #arquitecturamx #designboom #tv_leadinglines #architectanddesign #visualambassadors #architects_need #lensbible #artofvisuals #architecture_minimal #architecturedose #architecture_hunter #bealpha #ptk_architecture #raw_architecture #architecture
