El Tovar Hotel opened in 1905 at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. This historic hotel still thrives and shows off its original rustic architecture a few minutes west of the Visitor Center.
Right on the water in St. Petersburg Florida is a modern and unusual building. The surreal yet sumptuous architecture of the Dali Museum is worth the experience, no matter what's on display. But you'll want to stay for the permanent collection plus whatever they have in the temporary exhibit halls, too.
This week I have a simply stunning piece of architecture to show you! It’s the Innovation, Science and Technology (IST) building at Florida Polytechnic University in Lakeland.
In my post about the Airstream Ranch last week, I mentioned I’d seen sights along Interstate 4 recently I never knew existed. The IST at Florida Polytechnic was a prime example. (FYI: In the same post last week I also described the HDR digital photo process that gives photos a marvelous depth and interest. I used that process for the photo of the IST above.)
The headquarters of the Munich Reinsurance Company in Germany resides in this imposing piece of architecture built just for their own purposes. Designed by architects Oswald Eduard Bieber and Wilhelm Hollweck; built in 1912/13, it's located across the street from the Munich Riding School on the edge of the English Garden.
