I'm not sure that I like this building but I like the marble.

The slope of that bridge/ramp would make my grandson want to go down it on a skateboard.

Look at all that beautiful wood and glass! Wonderful architectural design!

the ramps look wheelchair accessible!

Some of the ”modern” architectural buildings appeal to me, but many do not. This is one I like, and I am especially drawn to the dual curved pathways around it. This style would work well in an art museum. The color is very appealing to the eye. You have a great capture here. Kudos!

Tanya said...

so modern, what a switch for you! love the lighting!

Francisca said...

Yup, internal ramps are bridges too. You took this through a window, right? The only thing that would still enhance the shot is if someone had polished that nice black (marble? granite?) floor.

Very interesting! Where are my roller skates. MB

Wow, how unusual and lovely! Does this wrap around? Very beautiful shot :D

The building has wonderful contrasts in materials, textures, colors and forms. It looks beautiful, though it can't match the wonder of the old historic places you show so often.

Uma sensação de arquitetura que sufoca. Não gostei da sensação que tive de longe, não sei como seria de perto.

Sharon said...

What an interesting building. It looks like that walkway wraps around a central core.

This is a great looking building, but of course, I love the old, historical ones that you show us so much more! This one does have lots of different textures and contrasts that make it very interesting! Terrific capture as always, JM!

Very familiar style of architecture. I see this winding walkway around buildings within a building often in great cities. Estoril is one great place too with modern buildings, I see. Nice picture.

I like the shadows and light in this photo.

Amin said...

Very unique colors!

Jacob said...

Look like roller derby ramps! I can just see scantily-clad young ladies tearing around the building on roller skates of these ramps. But then I have a weird imagination!

VP said...

My favorite kind of architecture!
