All About Architecture and Beautiful Buildings
Shona Sanzgiri / September 30, 2015
Unless you live way out in the country, the art of architecture can be found everywhere. From big cities to small suburbs, beautiful buildings and modern marvels have become an intrinsic part of contemporary life.

To say architects have an entirely different way of seeing modern buildings is a dramatic understatement.
Whether you consider yourself a budding builder or an amateur aficionado, we want you to be able to enjoy architecture with a well-rounded, critical eye. Here are five great architecture-related sources on Flipboard:
How can you tell “beautiful buildings” from more, shall we say, “ordinary” structures? If you want to see the world through an architect’s eyes, start with the Architecture topic.
