    I don't think its a castle though, looks more like Aztec or Mayan ruins in South America.

    I hear you there.. although you type "cathedral" into it, and i find all the ones im thinking of :D Or, alternatively, search for lists of that kind of place (ie: ealrly gothic cathedral) on Google, and then when you find the name of one, search for it in Google Images :):yesway:

    well my problem is that i have a very specific image i want to find, and i dont know if it even exists lol.

    if i could draw better, i'd do a proper sketch of my tattoo idea. since I can't draw very well, I gave my artist a very crude picture of what I want lol. Not 100% sure i'm going to get it yet, i dunno..

    back to architecture!

    The Millau bridge in France (probably not considered "architecture" but an amazing structure):

    i love the reflection in the 2nd pic of the 3 you posted, mischa - looks really cool in a surrealist sort of way, kind of.

    and for the record, some of us have their forums set to 30 replies/page - so this is page 2 for me, and mine will be the 3rd post in it ;) lol

    the Burj Al-Arab is sweeeeet. the Burj Dubai will look awesome when it's finished too. Architecture is so frigging metal! :hbang:

    they've started making plans for a building that is 1/3 taller than the Burj Dubai, which is called the Al Burj (they really know how to pick names huh :lol:) AKA the Nakheel Tower. here is what it will look like at night time:

    and here's a scale:

    ^ I fucking love the second building in on the "tall buildings" pic... To me, it looks exactly like what 'futuristic' buildings looked like in old NES games :lol: I fucking LOVE it :D

    yeah that's the Burj Dubai dude, and when it's finished it will be the world's tallest building, until the one on it's left overtakes it.

    Dubai has some awesome looking buildings, and there are soooo many more on the way. When I visited there pretty much every building was a construction site.

    It is astounding how much fork is put into these buildings.


    :flame:

    Also, I agree, I love great architecture :)
