A web of fabric like giant plant cells stretched beneath a canopy of branches.  Lacy panels of concrete lattice shading a waterside museum.  A tower block hosting a vertical forest.  A steel tube slide winding through the courtyard of a Florentine palazzo.  A redundant gasholder transformed into a drum-shaped housing block and mirrored pillars enclosing a garden for the imagination.  Six extraordinary structures that demand a second glance.

Sometimes a photo challenge prompts me to seek out new subjects with my camera or to look at familiar views from new angles.  This weekend Friendly Friday’s photo challenge Construction gave me a welcome excuse to rummage through my archive rather than venturing out into the drizzle. These photos are all from spring and summer 2018.
