Even that is open to conjecture. I suspect the Rosicrucians were behind that one although it can never be proven.

Bear in mind that the Illuminanti were a literary device invented by RAW, and these organizations varied greatly with respect to one another although in the same fraternity. The ideaology OTOH has remained mostly unchanged for several centuries.

Edit dam speiling.

If you want to keep this thread alive General Eyes, we are going to have to use it.

Agreed - I have some pics I took recently :

It's (in my view anyway) a triad lotus fountain overflowing with the waters of compassion, not nessecarily "architecture" in the grand sense of the term, but beautiful nonetheless on the way of inspirations.




Sorry I've been neglecting the thread, I've been busier than a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

Here's some of the Luxor Casino in Vegas -

Surprised no one else has posted these yet. WOW!










That last one really captures the spirit for me.

Here's a cool one of Luxor:
edit: here's another good one

If it's illuminati architecture, perhaps the MGM is a good example also. Well, maybe not so much since they removed the lion's mouth entrance. (Asians considered it bad luck, and considering how many Asians gamble, it was bad business to have a lions mouth as an entrance!) Anyways a "lions gate" (like the film company) is a gate that opens to the rising sun. The eastern gate at the temple of Jerusalem was called the lions gate, and older cultures had lion statues beside the gate because the lions roar was represented by the creeking of the giant wooden door that opened to let the sun in. Also a lion is yellow and a lion's mane is like the sun's rays.

Heres a new one, well built last year anyways. Its the Pyramid of Peace and Accord in Astana and its 62-metres high. It looks really interesting from the drawings too!



source

The pyramid is topped by a transparent peak where a doughnut-shaped meeting table hovers in mid-air.
...
Sunlight filtered by yellow and blue stained glass windows designed by Brian Clarke, a British artist and long-term Foster collaborator, streams down into the pyramid's cavernous atrium.

The opera house below is predominantly red. Perhaps heaven and hell are not the right comparisons, but Foster describes his building in symbolic terms.

"As you ascend up the pyramid you ascend up into the light," he said.

Another Foster theme -- breathtaking vertical drops that are enough to give most people wobbly legs -- is certainly present.


I find the floating meeting table kinda odd and very symbolic, dontcha think?

It was recently brought to my attention that this thread was pre-existent, so I thought I’d re-post and add a few links.

There are a couple of buildings in Dallas that have a bit more than just the usual surface level of occult symbolism. The first is the JP Morgan Chase Tower at 2200 Ross. This building features a hole through the top of it that sits on top of a pyramid. Looks like the all seeing eye to me. The top of the building is even arched just like the eyebrow. There’s also a ton of other symbolism with this beautiful building that you’d just have to see for yourself. Here’s a decent image of it.

The other is Renaissance Tower at 1201 Elm. This building was just a big rectangular box for a very long time. Some time in the mid ‘80’s, they decided to put five towers on the top of it. Each of these towers is topped by a double sided glass pyramid, with the center tower being much taller, and so the five pyramids form the outline of a larger pyramid. When the sun hits them just right, it looks like a beacon that you can see from 20 miles away. I wonder why they felt it necessary to add this on at the cost of many millions? Here’s a picture.

Yeah, I see what you were talking about in the other thread. There are a ton of pyramid topped buildings in Dallas. Most of them are kind of middle sized and ziggurat shaped, like a step pyramid.

I've got a road trip planned in a few months, and I'll try to get pics of some more things I have seen in my previous travels down that route.

Sorry I haven't come across anything lately.

Thanks for resurrecting the thread with additional examples. Resistor!


Peace!

Also, the Frost bank is '33' stories high AND the first high rise built in the U.S. after the 9-11 attacks

Hey folks - sorry for the thread neglect.

I wasn't able to take my trip, hence, no additional photos to add to the mix at the moment.

Anyone else have some examples they'd be willing to share?

I don't know if this is considered "Illuminati" architecture (it seems like anything slightly esoteric is considered Illuminati, so what the heck), but Hoover Dam is really interesting.



Hoover dam angels - these are really cool.

Well, I consider it Illuminati. The Hoover Dam is a master achievement.


Wonderful photos! Thanks for sharing with us!

I've driven over the dam, but it was night and quite crowded....I never had a chance to see some of the finer points and makers marks, etc.

Absolutley enchanting. Love the angels.

Here's a classic I'm surprised I've forgotten for this long...




The Transamerica. So lovely.


And another Classic...the Arc de Triumph.
