Architecture has always pursued two major objects – to make buildings a) functional and b) aesthetically attractive. These core standards still remain in use in modern architecture. Of course, functionality of buildings as well as aesthetics change and evolve constantly, but real masterpieces never lose their attractiveness and value. Have a look at the Pentagon building, and you will see the emblem of the American power and mightiness through it. On the other hand, even a single glance at the Eifel Tower is enough to recreate the atmosphere of French romance. Buildings, we have gathered in this gallery, are no doubt known worldwide. These architectural masterpieces form the cultural heritage our generations will pass on to our successors. Have a look at these magnificent creations – they are worthy of being proud of, aren’t they?
