Day 3220: Architecture

Because the architecture of this daily blog often includes definitions, I’m starting this post with a definition of “architecture.”

Last night, on Twitter, I asked a question about architecture.

At this point, there are over five hundred responses to that question. I look forward to reading those responses about beloved architecture during a day where I will be seeing some interesting architecture in the Longwood Medical area of Boston.

This morning, coincidentally, I discovered an email about architecture in my mailbox.

Do you see any interesting architecture in my other images for today?

Today I will also be consulting with someone who knows a lot about architecture regarding the structural damage to our home because of our leaking shower.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “architecture.”

This Steely Dan song has one of my favorite lyrics — “the dreary architecture of your soul.”

The architecture of these posts always includes gratitude, so thanks to all who visit here, including YOU!

  1. I’m admiring the lines of that hawkish bird, Ann! As far as structures go, I will admit a soft spot for Brady Bunch style homes in this land of ours, having grown up in mid-Modern Century America myself.

  2. Architecture is fine, but I want to know more about that hawk! They typically don’t let people get that close.

    “…the dreary architecture of your soul…” Are we the architects of our souls?

  4. Hi Ann, so nice to see you. That Hawk has brought you a message – couldn’t tell you what it is, but he definitely has something to say. I love Hawks, I see them on the way to work, there is always one that sits on a light pole on the side of the highway, beautiful creature. I wave to him every day.
    I loved the video on architecture – I thinks some of my favorite is the architecture in Chicago, with all the art deco influences, also the Neo-Classical buildings from the World’s Fair. I used to walk by Frank Lloyd’s Robie House on the way to school everyday, I used to pretend it was my house.

  5. I like wood-framed windows in old houses, and sincerely or mischievously painted doors.

    Is that a goshawk? I know nothing about birds but your photos make me think you might like the memoir “H is for Hawk” by Helen MacDonald.

  6. Ann, thank you for being the architect of this interesting, informative, and friendly blog! I see that the cats are building on their relationship.

  7. I spent a semester of college in Harlaxton Manor in England and it’s still funny to me that the 1999 film The Haunting was partially filmed there because the producers liked the architecture. I like the architecture too, but to me it looks more like an elaborate sand castle than a haunted house.

  8. What does it mean when a hawk comes to you? It means you are getting an important message from… Hawks encourage people for being observant, clear-sightedness, guard-ship, and our far memory. This spirit animal brings wisdom, courage, creativity, illumination, and truth to your life.

    p.s. my favorite architecture – small cozy cottages, and tumbling down stone buildings

  9. I watched a hawk in our backyard earlier this week. It was focused on our bird feeder, and I was focused on it! 🙂 I am one who really loves the architecture of the Walt Disney Concert Hall downtown Los Angeles. It is a polarizing object of either admiration or hostility. But I think it’s really cool! 🙂

    • It took me this long to find this comment from you, Debra, and I always appreciate the architecture of your comments!

  10. I am the proud daughter of a great Harvard graduate architect!
