Top 10 cities that you have to Visit
if you are an Architecture Lover
For Colección Interiorismo, the key towards the comprehension of architecture is the living of it, only by touching and walking through it, we can literally feel the passion and effect that its creator wanted to capture in it; the explanations of its processes are useful, but definitely the transcription of our senses is what gives a real signification.
This is why today Colección Interiorismo brings for you the 10 cities that you have to visit if, as us, you are an architecture lover:
A city that talks us about history, its styles are mixed forming an eclecticism in which we can find antique buildings of the 1600’s as the London Tower, or the highest skyscraper of the European Union, the Shard of Glass; a tour through this city is a complete tale from past to present of a continent.
For Colección Interiorismo, a jewel of renaissance and transformation, this City has suffered destructions and complete renaissances, visibles in a symbolic Brandenburg Door, passing to a modern structure, which as the dome of the German Parliament is a true mirror of transition. In another instance, we can’t forget that we are besides the cradle of the Bauhaus School, which gave as its fruits timeless objects and buildings in which “the form follows the function”, paradoxically reflected in its museum, the Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin of Walter Gropius.
Mundial center of Art Déco, it counts with around thirty blocks of hotels and residential buildings of the 20’s and 40’s with that style; to live its fractionated forms, its symmetrical cubist blocks, and its geometrization, in CI we recommend you to host in one of the most important buildings of the zone, as the Park Central Hotel or the Waldorf Towers Hotel in Ocean Drive, a travel through time in a gold age.
The White City, declared by the UNESCO as world heritage, it contains a group of 4000 Bauhaus buildings, a perfect example of adaptation of the form to the function, because everything was thought to adapt the climate, traditions and costumes of the region; as perfect examples of these you must not lose the Riegersus House and the Cinema Hotel, which walls protect from the sun, its large balconies capture the breeze, and even the colors are natural light reflectors; for CI a triumph of the usage of the means for a total human satisfaction.
Tangible history by finding buildings of practically any age, here you will find a global and unique view of architecture. As if this that was not enough, the crib of Antonio Gaudi, the searcher of new structural and esthetic forms, who opened the site for new architectural and design trends transforming an entire city with musts as the magistral fusion of the Holly Family, the symbolism made colors of Güell Park, or the magical and mythic Batlo House.
English heritage, Victorian houses, gothic bridges, and all with urban unforgettable postals; Colección Interiorismo invites you to know and recognize this place beyond its famous bridge; from a Cemetery which seems to be taken from an antique postal,
The Green-Wood Cemetery; the historical Brooklyn Heights, or the hidden beauty of a residential neighborhood: Dumbo.
The called architectural paradise, will marvel you with its impetus towards innovation and inspiration of architects as Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel, Norman Foster y Tadao Ando. Here you will find intelligent buildings, impressive skyscrapers as the Burj Khalifa, the biggest in the world, submarine hotels and artificial islands, don’t hesitate and visit with Colección Interiorismo the capital of modern urbanism.
If you want to live the sustainable architecture at first hand, you have to visit one of the Oregon sustainable hoods, where you can find the coexistence of the urban and natural spaces, creating a conscious city. Visit the called “20 Minute Hoods” which are walkable neighborhoods, in which all the basic necessary services are available at less than 20 minutes walking.
A city in which you will feel its search for beauty at every step, luxurious mansions with enchanted facades, and architectural treasures as mills and cantilever bridges; Amsterdam welcomes a fascinating combination of architectural works composed by the famous Amsterdam Channels of the XVII century (declared World Heritage), works of the Dutch architect Berlage and the School of Amsterdam as the Beurs van Berlage, and innovative projects in the business district of Zuidas and the neighborhood of Oosterdok.
And last but not least, our proper beautiful city, owner of impressive historical buildings and new constructions that join the best of the European influence with the native and the artisan, a delight for anyone, that can be admired in Latin European fusions as the Chapultepec Castle, the Beauty Arts Palace and the Metropolitan Cathedral.
