From the bold and beautiful to just plain bizarre, the history of architecture encompasses a vast number of unique works throughout the world. Though whatever the design, architecture not only ensures a building’s structural integrity, but also acts as a reinforcer of its cultural standing and representation of the ideas and activities that take place inside its walls. From palaces and theaters, to factories and apartment houses, it’s time to explore some of the most incredible architectural wonders still standing.

Join New York Adventure Club for our three-part Global Architectural Wonders series, where we virtually scour the globe to uncover some of the most remarkable and astonishing works of architecture ever constructed. In Part TwoForm Follow Function — we’ll examine traditional buildings to contemporary designs that create an architectural language out of their functional requirements.

Led by architectural historian David V. Griffin of Landmark Branding, this digital showcase featuring a selection of incredible global architectural wonders will include:

  • Fascinating landmarks and institutions, from the world’s oldest suspended railway to the largest group of radio transmitters in the world
  • Amazing constructions, including a unique Italian castle and one of the world’s first skyscrapers.
  • Monuments of industry, from windmills and water wheels to power plants and dams
  • An in-depth look at each building’s construction, context, and current status, with a focus on how culture and innovation drive architectural symbolism

Afterward, we’ll have a Q&A with David — any and all questions about these unique buildings are welcomed and encouraged!
