Architecture from Every Country
This was a fantastic thread from The Cultural Tutor — so simple, but had me on an epic Wikipedia / Google Maps rabbit hole.
Some of my favorite examples:
- Las Lajas Shrine, Colombia
- Samtavisi Cathedral, Georgia
- Monastery of the Holy Trinity, Greece
- Borobudur, Indonesia
- Fortifications of Kotor, Montenegro
Kind of sad to see so many overbearing modernist structures in here, but some of them are nothing if not impressive, at least.
His newsletter, Areopagus, is full of great tidbits on art, history, classics, architecture, rhetoric. Well worth a subscribe.
