    I am amazed at the buildings’ design: they are functional yet they are designed in good taste. Nowadays they would do an ugly rectangle that claims to be a warehouse and they’d call it a day…
    Just look at this one! Is this REALLY a warehouse? Is this REALLY a silo?

    This looks better than some of the “fancy” buildings of nowadays…

      Where it says “some”, take it and replace it with “most”. Yeah, these old buildings are better designed than most buildings these days. The architects had better tastes…

        I absolutely agree, with you. It is such a shame. We are also losing the unique architectural building styles, of each part of the world.

        I remember Frihavnen from my childhood and how many of those silos and warehouses was empty and not in use. As a young boy and early teenager I just walked inside these old beautiful buildings.

        I have been in most of the buildings on this picture and most of them are not here today.

        Nowadays people only care for building ugly squares if that can be done faster and bring more cash… It’s a shame.
        There are some old houses (houses that are like 100 years old) where I live. These are better, by far, to the houses that are built now. Not only in the aesthetics department, they are also better in the durability department… These ugly boxes do not last more than five/ten years without displaying problems. It’s really a shame.

        You are right, on the point. Also building materials was often better back then.

        “Building materials from before 1950 are of considerably better quality than much of what you can buy today because production methods were different. Good old-fashioned craftsmanship is being induced to say.”

        Old wooden floor and vindows lasted very long and are still being recycled today.
        It’s a waste of resources to tear the old buildings down just to build new ones instead.

        Indeed! It’s not only a waste of resources… it’s a killing of culture. Aestethically, the older buildings are better. They demolish an old house and replace it instead with an ugly square, or, with a skyscraper! Skyscrapers might be marvels of enginery, but they don’t usually look very good…
        The craftmanship of the older houses is indeed superior. Even at the most minute details…

        I am happy, that you find it interesting. I have always enjoyed what I think is good architecture and history, that is also why I try to share it. Like the German castles and city halls.

        I am a klutz when it comes to identifying architecture styles, but I enjoy this kind of posts too. They are a good break from the usual business of jew-bashing/chronic of the ill state of Western Civilization. Your architecture posts are good White pills for those in need. That’s why I reblog these posts too…
        We have great art and culture, and architecture is also a good showcase of art, as well.

        Me, too. But, I know what I like. 🙂

        Thanks, its (for me) also about waking people up and not just post things for people already redpilled.
        It also work as “click bait” for normies, I do get visitors only because of it.
        It can have a negative influence on oneself, when only dealing with all this red pill stuff!

        “We have great art and culture, and architecture is also a good showcase of art, as well.”

        I agree, architecture is my favorite kind of art.
