Since about an hour.

There's a bit of an archive of a week to get an idea though. Check the archive link in the menu on that page.

A fitting first comparison would've been Chrysler Building vs. Empire State Building.

I like the idea. Hopefully you have enough subjects to fill it in for the rest of the year

Okay, some things that cross my mind:

Locations of cities (natural surroundings)
Quality versus quantity
Public space
Interior of skyscrapers
Architectural styles (deconstructivism vs postmodernism for example)

Schloss Neuschwanstein vs. Cinderella Castle

I've been to Schloss Neuschwanstein and it's truly amazing! The surrounding area and the castle itself. Love to go back there.

How about the Parthenon vs The Sphinx in Giza?
I hope mine gets picked.
