I like beautiful things. Buildings are really big beautiful things. When I travel I always take note of architecture, which involves sensitivity to what you encounter as much as it does hunting for landmarks. Most of the buildings and environments are those I've witnessed first hand.
A marvelous museum of modern/contemporary art, The Tate Gallery/Liverpool, built within the structure of the old Albert Docks in Liverpool, here creating a kind of cloisters. Excellent re-purposing of existing architectural space Liverpool
The Italianate style in 19th century residential architecture has always been pleasantly striking to me. And this house at 1015 Tennessee St. in Lawrence, Kansas has sentimental value to me.
