Architects know that to be well designed, buildings must meet many requirements: they must be useful, functional, and accessible. Aesthetics can sometimes be overlooked. The architecture that we are going to show you leaves us speechless, however, precisely because of its aesthetic appearance: some are houses, others are mosques or office buildings. In their diversity, they have one thing in common: they enchant us with their straight lines, rounded shapes, heights, and colors. You may have already visited some buildings, others may be unfamiliar to you: these sixteen architectural examples are just a few of the wonders that can be found in the world.
