The Power of Wealth in Futuristic Architecture


Staggering Shapes,Swirls,Curves soaring to reach up to Heaven and enter the gate of Eternity …

Eclecticism ...

Eclecticism …

Bewildered by a riotous array of futuristic schemes and polygonal shapes,I urgently tried to translate them into space and forget the minimalist aesthetics.Do they aim at quality constructions or they want to live in a futuristic vision? Skyscrapers and towering buildings freeing architecture to extreme geometrical shapes that take your breath away and make you feel you live in an ephemeral paradise down on earth … The apotheosis of architecture unfolds before your very eyes and the mind-blowing,monumental constructions make you feel so small …

The sail-shaped construction,standing on a manmade island and overlooking the turquoise waters of the Arabian Sea,was built to resemble a dhow which is a type of Arabian vessel.While the exterior appears ultra-modern,its interior is an anthology of interesting,lavish styles.Truly,spectacular constructions to see it from all angles and understand why it marked an epoch in the history of futuristic architecture.

Weigh anchor !!!

Will you join the voyage,my WordPress friends ? If not suffering from acrophobia experience a range of untamed,dazzling styles and avant-garde designs all the way up and up … Art Deco and revolutionary,architectural elements with harmonious proportions and eurhythmy,extending far upward and travelling you forward in time.Is it a quest for hyperbole or the need to conquer the rules of the Euclidean Geometry,I wonder ?

Architectural Triumph and Eclecticism through Tectonics,Intercolumniation and Structuralism

Please don’t lean over and look down …

Simply,live the spirit of the dimensional Geometry and Gigantism. Does architecture start when you carefully put a couple of bricks together,or is it much more than this ? Yes,it is much more when it stands one thousand feet tall and it is a distinctive landmark on Dubai’s skyline.

And when snow never or rarely comes to your place,bring it home artificially … OM ! What else shall I see in here ? Thoughts,in the Mall of Emirates indoor ski area … No mountains,no high summits,yet plenty of snow-clad sceneries and fabulous ski facilities …

I suppose, it is high time I went for a walk and come down to earth and enjoy the simple delights of life …

And what about a Desert Safari to gaze at the vastness of sandy shores and the natural architecture of the dunes ? Our planet is a colourful and beautiful world …

My Reflected Reflections on Futuristic Architecture and Deco Art Inside and Outside Space …

night reflections

Is there any end to architectural ambitions,I wonder as I wander … Do I gaze at monumental,futuristic constructions or at some new Babel Towers ? How much higher can we get ? Are they simple samples of futuristic,architectural ambitions and concepts of evolutionary development or Hybris ??? Oh ! Hybris ! What a word in the Power Of Wealth in Futuristic Architecture …

I dedicate this post especially to Lebbeus Woods,Antonio Sant’Elia and to all the Visionary architects and the illusionists who mastered and still master the Art and Science of designing and erecting big,futuristic constructions.

Will They ever Manage to Quench  their Architectural Megalomania … ? Who knows …

          • You bring tears to my eyes, Doda. When I first opened Petals Unfolding, it was my truest and highest intention that Love flows here, that only Truth is spoken here, and that beauty flourishes here. From what you are saying, that intention has come to pass.

            When those of like mind/heart meet, the “Magic” begins, as our hearts open and our Divine Nature pours forth. I am blessed, so much so. I am posting two posts tomorrow, One will be about my life, and how blessed I am. My words spoken will reflect many others’ feelings, on how they see their lives as well. Peace, Love, and Prosperity to you!!! Love, AmyRose
