The world has so many amazing buildings that it can be hard to know which ones are truly above the rest. These include old and new pieces of architecture all over the world, including museums, wineries, religious spaces, skyscrapers, transportation hubs, hotels, and more. Buildings can tell us a lot about a country’s way of life and the culture during the period when it was built; a bit like looking at a historical photograph. But unlike a photo, buildings continue to change after construction is finished. Time affects the building’s aesthetic – the usual wear and tear demands renovation and the changing tastes of society have their own impact on the design and functionality of a building.
