I take literally what you say here: to name some of our favorite architectural elements in our city. I therefore focus on elements of specific buildings/structures, rather than the buildings/structures themselves.

Pylon, Michigan Avenue Bridge, Chicago:




Owls atop the pediment of Chicago Public Library (Harold Washington Library Center)




Assyrian-style Consecration frieze, Medinah Athletic Club (now Hotel Intercontinental) Chicago




Dome, Fullerton Hall, Art Institute of Chicago

Some beautiful pictures, guys! Interpret architectural elements as you wish - i purposefully stated it like that. Personally i feel that the term architectural 'element' can be understood quite broadly; from a roof decoration, to a development of structures forming a cohesive whole. Feel free to post either, or anything in between! :)

There are many project U/C right now so when they're completed things will change a bit, but for now my favourite piece of architecture in Zagreb is Eurotower I... it's the completed skyscraper in this pic:



My favourite old building in the city is the St. Mark's Church currently under renovation



:cheers:

The church was built in late XIV century. The roof represents coats of arms. The left coat of arms represents 3 historic regions of Croatia (Dalmatia, Istria and Slavonia). The right one is coat of arms of Zagreb city engraved with the year 1499. on it.

Looks pretty much like a rendering :nuts:
You're right, that was the finalized rendering..

Its under construction right now and is nearing completion (supposed to open in the late fall). I couldnt find any recent pictures so that Is why I used those renderings.

I will try to search for some recent pictures.
