Olympic fever is in the air! Daily we see images of London and it's architecture, while we support the world's athletes. It is a real mix of historic and current modern design. It's one of the few countries where you can see buildings centuries old side by side with almost futuristic structures. The Olympic park and all of it`s arenas are amazing examples of today`s architects.
Take a look at these top 9 designs.
I have been to London several times but not for many years so I haven`t seen the newer buildings but I have always loved the old favourites like these below
When you go to other countries you get to see all different homes and how people live. When I first came to Canada I felt like everything was so much bigger and far apart. I soon realised that there were neighbourhoods, but they did look so different than ones I was used to. Homes were mostly wooden frames with siding, some with brick but very few seemed to be built entirely of brick or stone. the shapes and styles were new to me too. I thought I would show you some examples of great homes found in London where the whole world is gathering for this latest Olympic event. . . .
Every country has it's own design esthetic. Again Britain seems a real mix of ecclectic colour and pattern alongside minimalist contemporary. It's a real melting pot of ideas and history which influence the interiors there.
Take a closer look at the host of the Olympics for more than just the sport. I would love to visit it again one day,how about you?
Added note just in case you are an Olympian reading this. . . . . .
