If a building becomes architecture, then it is art

For the first anniversary of Lens-Artist Challenge, Tina, Ann-Christine, Patti and Amy let us decide the topic for this week’s challenge. After a few hours of thinking, I end up with Modern Architecture. I like them because they are unique. They are usually art objects but you can walk inside and appreciate the creativity of the designers. Because some of these buildings have pretty interesting walls, I think they are also suitable for Frank’s Photo Challenge – Wall.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!

    Amazing quote, couldn’t agree more 😉
    And stunning photographs. What did you think of Seoul’s library? It’s high on my list.

      I didn’t know about the Seoul University 🙂 Have to google it later. I have only heard of the Yonsei University which looks a lot like a European castle. By my next visit, I would love to see the Samsung Museum of Art and the National Museum of Korea. Their architecture are impressive as well 😛

        I am sorry Len, I meant Eunhwa University in Seoul (one of the pictures at the top). It’s by a famous architect: Dominique Perrault. But thanks for letting me know about Yonsei University because I had no idea about it 😀 Korean architecture is very unique and the modern cases are worth studying.

        I think it’s a clever way of using the terrain. In stead of building on the hill, they dug into it and create a lot of space. Natural light is the main light source and green space is also preserved. So it benefits both students and the environment 🙂
