Shaping The City: Architecture And Travel

Shaping The City: Architecture And Travel

Across the nation and around the globe, many cities are home to both familiar and unknown architectural gems. Which are the amazing streetscapes and buildings you shouldn't miss? We'll find out.

Summer travel might take you to Europe, where you can marvel at Italian Renaissance palaces, wander through 19th century Parisian neighborhoods, or visit old Lisbon's Manueline buildings. Modern architecture fans might be drawn to Tokyo, Berlin, Cape Town, or Sao Paolo. In the U.S., visitors can take in the mid-century masterpieces in Los Angeles, French colonial facades in New Orleans, or even the neoclassical buildings right here in Washington, D.C. Join us and share your favorite architecture from around the corner or around the world.
