Architecture Speaks

rochester-home

The design, order and symmetry, as well as the aesthetics of this little scene touched me deeply as I walked past. There was something  beautiful and extremely peaceful about it, both outwardly and inwardly. I think the colour also had something to do with it. There’s a spirituality, or call it what you will,  in architecture that can have a profound effect on us.

About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

  1. What a beautiful exterior. The colour does enhance the shapes which are very pleasing. I agree about architecture having a spiritual element – I feel it often. 🙂

  5. I think the energy coming from a building can really be felt, good and bad. It definitely feels peaceful 🙏🏻

  8. I really admire your perspective on the architecture, the way you express how buildings sometimes have a tendency to move us in a profound way. Don’t mistake this for advertising, but i actually discuss some of those elements in my own blog, so check it out if you want to!
