This year Architecture is close to my heart as my son is studying to become an architect.
But the particular type of architecture that I love is an arch.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines an arch as:
"a curved structural member spanning an opening and serving as a support
(as for the wall or other weight above the opening)"
I'm not sure what it is about an arch that appeals, but I think arches look quite imposing and grand.
Here are some pictures I took way back in 1993 when I toured Europe. Loved these arches.
inside the Roman Forum, Rome
Arch of Constantine, Rome
Arch of Titus, Rome
Arc de Triomphe, Paris
