Here I am sharing my very personal discoveries.
There is rarely a better feeling than setting off to the unknown, bags packed, bus, train, plane – all as usual. And it is great to have an aim in the travels, sometimes my aim is only to find well designed buildings for the blog, and then I am all exited “Ah, it’s gonna be a great blog entry”. Surely it’s an effort, many times I had to come back for the building (as originally the light conditions were too bad or I even did not have a camera), I make research before the trip, ask my architect or design loving friends what do they recommend to see. And of course, I photograph much more that I publish. Basically you get to see only the best of the best.
I am an architect (more about me here on my company’s architectural website). All the photographs submitted in this blog are made solely by myself. I photograph buildings that attract my attention for my references, for remembering, or just for fun. I love finding links between the buildings via photography medium what is one of my passions. .
By the way if the building featured has no architect’s name or missing some other extremely important info, it means I did not find it. If You are the architect of the building please do not be shy to contact me and I will update the details.

Sometimes I do travel without camera. Like this time visiting Canova’s temple in Possagno. One of the few buildings made with true love and passion, I lack the words to explain the quality of space. It should be experienced, being there, moving, maybe it should be filmed rather than photographed. Essentially this is what I search for, the perfect and at the same time imperfect-frozen in time, with risks of coming out of fashion as ways of building and people’s moods change, with all the limitations of the physical world, the ideal of architecture:
