Celebrating interesting, beautiful structures around the world
With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.
You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.
At the Hilton Head Area Homebuilders Association’s Lowcountry Home & Garden Show, we asked, “What’s the most interesting, beautiful or unusual building you’ve ever seen or been in?”
Liz McGinnes, Ridgeland: “The Pompidou Centre in Paris. All the structural parts, like the duct work, are on the outside.”
Amber Boulware, Bluffton: “The Matthias Church in Budapest (aka Church of the Assumption of the Buda Castle). It has a lot of the original stonework from the 11th century, very ornate.”
Kathryn Boulware, Bluffton: “My house. My favorite part is my room, because it has a bean bag chair that turns into a bed!”
Trish Halle, Bluffton: “St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City. It has beautiful stained glass windows. The outside, the architecture, is just wow.”
Lisander Sanchez, Bluffton: “Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. It makes me wonder about how, back then, they created such a beautiful building.”
