Fabulous Fridays…Curved Architecture..

Sydney-Mediterranean-House-Architecture-DesignStraight Up…I love a curve…there is something really cool about a curved wall. Throughout the years, architects and designers have added flair and drama to regular straight buildings..By throwing a curve here and there…what a difference that slanty little piece of detail makes…

curved-wall-architecture-2The best way to add a curve is to consider the surroundings…carving out a space from the side of a mountain means that your house or pool can literally hug the sides and wrap itself around the terrain..Instant Curve appeal…

Spanish architecture has a subtle smooth curve or arch..its classic and timeless and yet a very modern twist…and being all white is a major plus..

Sydney_OperaYou can’t post about curved architecture without giving the Sydney Opera House a quick mention. It was conceived and largely built by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, opening in 1973 after a long gestation that began with his competition-winning design in 1957. It is one of the 20th century’s most distinctive buildings and one of the most famous performing arts centres in the world.

So if you think you can handle a little extra..add some curves to your world…Your space can be the envy of the neighbourhood..Look out..Dangerous Curves Ahead..
