Architectonics is a noun which represents “the scientific study of the art and practice of design and construction of buildings.” And by analogy with (plate-) tectonics, key figures and their subsequent creations have shaped architectural ideas and trends around the world. In the following locations, I’ve chosen specific buildings or structures over generic cityscapes.

  1. Austria: Innsbruck
  2. Austria: Vienna
  3. Canada: Burnaby
  4. Czech Republic: Prague
  5. Germany: Alfeld
  6. Germany: Dessau
  7. Germany: Hamburg
  8. Germany: Magdeburg
  9. Germany: Munich
  10. Germany: Rothenburg ob der Tauber
  11. New Zealand: Wellington
  12. USA: Grand Canyon
  13. USA: Seattle
