^Good call, but I can imagine that gothic architecture won't be seen by everyone as beauty.

I haven't seen many buildings from the Renaissance on here yet!

Reichstag in Berlin is quite impressive. I loved the view from the top of it.
The Eiffel Tower, to me, is the most beautiful building from before the 20th century.

Other favorites:
Sydney Opera House
Chrysler Building
ESB
British Parliament w/ Big Ben

And if it's ever built....
Chicago Spire

I was put off by the Uffizi gallery because I waited over an hour just to get inside when I visited Florence. The cathedral however is exquisite - beautiful yet completely unique. I love that you can just wander in to churches and cathedrals in Italy

This thread is a joke. Why are people posting pics of average looking glass towers?

Westminster Palace and Kyoto are nice, out of these. Very detailed and sharpened in design. Untouchable and peaceful.

Have some drink. . .probably.

While I personally do not like Berlin's architectures in general.

Just kidding, I can see how someone might think it's beautiful, I was just thrown off by the blue thing since I've only seen it in pictures and it doesn't look blue. I thought it looked blue in person or something.

anyway... Sainte-Chapelle in Paris for the interior. People who say Gothic is dark and heavy don't know what they're talking about.


It's even blue on the inside. The prettiest color of them all.
Saying the Sainte-Chapelle is one of the most beautiful building is arguable, however it was almost thoroughly reintegrated (half of the stained glasses, statues, outer porch and spire) and repainted by Eugene Viollet-Le Duc in the XIX century according to the romantic taste of his age. I mean it's basically a neogothic building - gorgeous, sure.

Millenium Bridge and Saint Paul's. Dear humble and beautiful London, the fish-bone like bridge leading me to the heaven.

I absolutely love the Soc Gen HQ in La Defense, Paris. Definitely not the most beautiful building in the world by any stretch but certainly a very sleek and modern looking office complex:
