Nice collection of odd architecture, but the last one threw me, completely different! Well done!

This is a wonderful series! This type of photography is not something I have any sort of an eye for. You do it incredibly well! The fourth image is my very favorite of these! Love it!

Great series. I love this kind of photography, especially when I'm traveling (Eugene does not have much for swooping modern lines). Except a few and you have inspired me to go and shoot them again.

Thanks for sharing the results of your work.

I thank you all sincerely for your kind remarks and taking the time to respond.

Thanks for your kind words, and yes it pic No.6. But because you cheated by Googeling for it you will not win the all expenses paid first class around the world air ticket. This is the pitfall for being honest.

Correct - you know your art !
Thanks

Indeed ! Santiago Calatrava is the man behind the Milwaukee Art Museum which I visited last year.
He designed similar sweeping structures around the world, mainly with a lot of tubular steel in the exterior part of the buildings.

I always feel Calatrava's smooth curvy designs (In this sense) can be compared with Jørn Utzon Sydney Opera House.

Thanks for commenting
