Nowaday, people tend to think that we are more advanced than our ancestors were. The truth is our techniques may be more progressive than manual methods in the past but it does not prove that our works are in a high level of beauty than those had been made long time ago. In fact, we are still learning from all the heritages which were left until today, especially in architecture.

One of the conventional rule in design is symmetry which is found in many cultural patterns from the East and even in classical imperial Western style. It may be boring to the contemporary perspective but people still be amazed by all of the gorgeous ancient buildings just like this one.

Believe it or not, our “machine-made” today architecture will never achieve the richness and deep of emotion like our glory past.

      This is so true, I do agree with your opinion about old and new architecture. Maybe in the past, architects had to sharpen their skills very often and did not rely too much on computer generated images.

    I totally agree with you. I think the mere fact that we have technology they didn’t makes their works even more beautiful and fascinating. I wonder how many modern building today will still stand tall and strong like so many older monuments and structures.

    A beautiful photo of classical architecture. Here in the U.S., we don’t really have classic architecture like this since our buildings don’t date back that far. In Detroit, “old” buildings would be from the early 20th century and there aren’t that many of that vintage, either.

      if there is some remarkable thing about the U.S architecture, it must be the dare to explore new techs and forms within those urban buildings. Albeit I do not really fancy with contemporary architecture, I must admit that they are a critical part of our modern social life.
