Hello Everyone,

I have always been fascinated by buildings and architecture and I found this an interesting read,Link here.

I wonder how many worldwide never made it! And what they were?

My favourite 2 buildings ever done would have to be Crystal Palace by Joseph Paxton of London and the unfinished Sagrada Familliaby Antonio Gaudi Of Barcelona.

Please share yours with me.

Regard Jamie

My personal favorite is Frank Lloyd Wright's plans for a one mile high skyscraper that he named "The Illinois" which would have had 528 floors.

Here's a link about it:

This reminds me of more ambitious plans of entire cities, like the Venus Project.

Here's a list of Top 10 Cities you'll never visit

There may be some CGI recreational walkthrough videos for some of these floating around on youtube were one to take the time to look.

Yeah now that’s what I’m talking about, I don’t know how long booze town would have lasted tho, would have ended up a slum riddled with crime!
My favourites after reading them all must be Dongtan, Triton City and Seward’s Success being my favorite.
Thanks for showing me these very cool stuff indeed 

There are skyscrapers, and then there are skypenetrators.
