_________________________ Wat Mangkon Kamalawat | Bangkok, Thailand | c. 1846 • • Wat Mangkon Kamalawat (Thai: วัดมังกรกมลาวาส), previously and still commonly known as Wat Leng Noei Yi, is the largest and most important Chinese Buddhist temple in Bangkok, Thailand. It hosts celebrations of a number of year-round events, including Chinese New Year, and the annual Chinese vegetarian festival • • Located in the district of Pom Prap Sattru Phai in the city's Chinatown, in a courtyard off Charoen Krung Road accessed by an alleyway, it was founded as a Mahayana Buddhist temple in 1871 or 1872 (depending on sources), by Phra Archan Chin Wang Samathiwat, initially with the name Wat Leng Noei Yi. It was later given its current name by King Chulalongkorn which means "Dragon Lotus Temple", • • The temple is built in a classic Chinese architectural style, with typical sweeping tiled roofs decorated with animal and floral motifs, including the ubiquitous Chinese dragons. The ubosot (ordination hall) houses the temple's main, gold colored, Buddha image in the Chinese style, and is fronted by an altar at which religious rites are performed • • The main entrance to the 'viharn' or sermon hall is flanked by large statues of the four guardians of the world, the Chatulokkaban, clothed in warrior costumes. Around the temple there are shrines dedicated to a variety of Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian deities and religious figures, all important in local Chinese beliefs • • At the rear of the temple stand three pavilions, one dedicated to the Chinese goddess (or bodhisattva) of compassion, Guan Yin, one to the temple's founder, Phra Archan Chin Wang Samathiwat, and one to the saint Lak Chao • • The courtyard in front of the main temple buildings is home to several other shrines, including a furnace for the ritual burning of paper money and other offerings to the devotees' ancestors • • Know more?

_________________________ InterContinental Chicago | Chicago, Illinois | c.1927 • • The InterContinental Chicago, originally known as the Medina Athletic Club, was built as a private club on the northeast corner of Illinois Street in Chicago, Illinois. It is home to one of the biggest hotel pools in the country and the oldest in the city of Chicago • • Commissioned by the Shriners Organization during a building boom in the United States, it was lavishly designed by architect Walter W. Ahlschlager. The 45-story building was completed in 1929 boasting a twenty third floor miniature golf course, a shooting range, a billiards hall, an archery range, a two story boxing arena, and a junior Olympic size swimming pool • • At the time, the pool was one of the highest indoor pools in the world, and its fourteenth-floor location was heralded as an engineering feat. To hold such a large quantity of water at its height, engineers developed a system similar to the support system used by railroad bridges • • The area around the pool showcases preserved classic architecture from the 1920s including a terra cotta fountain of Neptune, Spanish hand-painted tiles, marble pillars and stained-glass windows. It is known to many as the Johnny Weismuller pool, a testament to the famous Olympic athlete who trained in its waters • • In 1934 the Shrine Organization filed for bankruptcy protection and lost control of the building. In the decade after, while a lengthy legal battle was waged, the building went through various incarnations, including a brief stint as residential apartments • • In 1989, Intercontinental Hotels purchased the property and completed extensive renovations prior to it’s grand re-opening in 1990. Today the Intercontinental Chicago Magnificent Mile is a member of the Historic Hotels of America, part of the National Trust for Historic Preservation • • Know more?

________________________ Singapore Badminton Hall | Geylang, Singapore | c. 1952 • • The Former Singapore Badminton Hall was an indoor sports hall for badminton located at on Guillemard Road in Geylang, Singapore. The old facility was refurnished in May 2009 as the commercial centre Guillemard Village, and a new Hall was constructed nearby at 1 Lorong 23 Geylang • • The Stadium was built in 1952 for the Thomas Cup Tournament – an international badminton competition among teams representing member nations of the Badminton World Federation (BWF), the sport's global governing body. As there was no suitable indoor sports hall in the country at the time, the Singapore Badminton Association (SBA) decided to construct one • • In February that year, SBA requested from the Singapore Government a plot of land at Guillemard Road to build the stadium and was granted a 99-year lease on the land and proceeded to build the sports hall • • The Singapore Badminton Stadium was completed in May 1952. However, the SBA did not have sufficient funds to cover the total construction cost. Eventually, the hall was relinquished to the Singapore Sports Council which took over its management in 1978 • • In July 2007, the SBA announced plans to close the Badminton Hall after the 30-year lease between the Singapore Sports Council and the Urban Redevelopment Authority ceased • • Three years after the closure, the new hall was opened in 2011 with 14 Olympic sized courts and permanent seating for 400 spectators. It currently serves as a sport venue for badminton trainings and main tournaments • • Know more?

________________________ Bristol Temple Meads | Bristol, England | c. 1839 • • Bristol Temple Meads is the oldest and largest railway station in Bristol, England. It is an important transport hub for public transport in the city. In addition to the train services there are bus services to many parts of the city and surrounding districts, and a ferry to the city centre. Bristol's other major station, Bristol Parkway, is on the northern outskirts of the conurbation. • • Temple Meads was opened on 31 August 1840 as the western terminus of the Great Western Railway from London Paddington, 116 miles 31 chains (187.3 km) from Paddington. The railway (including Temple Meads) was the first to be designed by the British engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel • • Soon the station was also used by many other railways, so to accommodate the increasing number of trains, the station was expanded in the 1870s by Francis Fox and again between 1930 and 1935 by Percy Emerson Culverhouse • • The platforms are numbered 1 to 15 but passenger trains are confined to just eight tracks. Most platforms are numbered separately at each end, with odd numbers at the east end and even numbers at the west. Platform 2 is not signalled for passenger trains, and there is no platform 14 • • The name Temple Meads derives from the nearby Temple Church, which was gutted by bombing during World War II. The word "meads" is a derivation of an Old English variation of "mædwe", meadow, referring to the water meadows alongside the River Avon that were part of Temple parish • • Brunel's terminus is no longer part of the operational station, but the historical significance of the station has been noted, and most of the site is Grade I listed. As of 2014, more than 9.5 million entries and exits were recorded at the station • • Know more?

DM us your suggestions or leave a comment below We can’t wait! I❤️** ______________________________________________________ Milano Ristorazione | Milan, Italy | c. 1934 • • Located in Milan's 2nd Zone, in a historic neighborhood formerly known for its small shops which sold traditional Milanese products is one of the first fish markets in Milan that today houses a ‘Taste & Health Center’ for one of the city’s largest municipal catering supply operations • • In the Middle Ages, the landlocked city of Milan became an ideal location for the center of commerce for northern Italy due to the vast network of canals converging from all over the Po River valley. At one point Milan was among the largest ports in Italy in terms of tons of cargo loaded and unloaded which naturally lead to wholesale fish markets taking root near the center of the city • • The development of Zone 2 was largely influenced by its location on important routes leading from Milan to major nearby settlements, so this area would eventually house one of the city’s first fish markets and it was completed in 1934 • • The business changed hands over the years and became a factory sometime in the mid-20th century until it was eventually abandoned. It was not until 2004 that the structure was commissioned to undergo a 6-year refurbishment • • In 2010, Milano Ristorazione SpA – a company of the Municipality of Milan, which has been supplying catering services to many schools in the city since 2001 opened the center as an alimentary education and a commercial location to facilitate the preparation of meals for Milanese schoolchildren • • Know more?

_________________________ National Portrait Gallery | Edinburgh, Scotland | c. 1889 • • The Scottish National Portrait Gallery is an art museum on Queen Street, Edinburgh which holds the national collections of portraits, all of which are of, but not necessarily by, Scots. Since 1889 it has been housed in its red sandstone Gothic revival building, designed by Robert Rowand Anderson • • Built in 1885, the building was donated by John Ritchie Findlay, owner of The Scotsman newspaper. The Museum opened in 1889 sharing the space with the National Museum of Antiquities, now the Museum of Scotland, until 2009 • • The building was designed in the Gothic Revival style with a combination of Arts and Crafts and 13th-century Gothic influences. Noted for its ornate Spanish Gothic style, this Category A listed building was an unusual addition to Edinburgh's mostly Georgian Neoclassical New Town • • The design was influenced by a number of other Gothic and Gothic Revivial architectural works, in particular the rectangular Gothic Doge's Palace in Venice and the works of George Gilbert Scott • • The origin of the collection itself can be traced to David, 11th Earl of Buchan whose portraits of famous Scots, assembled in the late eighteenth century, formed the foundation of the national portrait collection in its first conception • • Today totaling some 3,000 paintings & sculptures, 25,000 prints & drawings, and 38,000 photographs. Many of the most notable paintings were made on the Continent (often during periods of exile from the turbulent Scottish political scene) • • After being closed in 2009, for the first comprehensive refurbishment in its history, the gallery reopened in December 2011. The Scottish National Portrait Gallery is part of National Galleries of Scotland, a public body that also owns the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh • • Know more?

_________________________ Frederiksberg Palace | Copenhagen, Denmark | c. 1699 • • Frederiksberg Palace (Danish: Frederiksberg Slot) is a Baroque residence, located in Frederiksberg, Denmark, adjacent to the Copenhagen Zoo. It commands an impressive view over Frederiksberg Gardens. The palace served as the royal family’s summer residence until the mid-19th century • • As crown prince, Frederick IV had broadened his education by traveling in Europe. He was particularly impressed by the architecture in Italy and, on his return to Denmark, asked his father, Christian V, for permission to build a summer palace on Solbjerg as the hill in Valby was then known • • The original building, likely designed by Ernst Brandenburger, was completed in 1703 as a small, one-story residence. The first major extension, converting it into a three-story H-shaped building, was completed in 1709 by Johan Conrad Ernst, giving the palace an Italian Baroque appearance • • It was Lauritz de Thurah who executed the third and final extension from 1733 to 1738 when the palace received extensions to the lateral wings encircling the courtyard • • Frederick IV spent many happy years at the palace. In 1716, he received the Russian czar Peter the Great and in 1721, shortly after the death of his first wife, Queen Louise, he married his mistress Anne Sophie Reventlow there • • After Frederick VI's dowager wife Queen Marie died at the palace in March 1852, the building lay empty and fell into disrepair. In 1868, it was transferred to the War Ministry and the following year it became the Officers Academy • • The building has twice undergone significant restoration work, first from 1927 to 1932 and later from 1993 to 1998 • • Know more?

_________________________ Joliot-Curie Station | Sofia, Bulgaria | c. 2009 • • Joliot-Curie Metro Station (Bulgarian: Метростанция „Жолио Кюри“) is a station on the Sofia Metro in Bulgaria. Located under Dragan Tsankov Boulevard at the intersection with Frederic Joliot-Curie Str, next to the World Trade Center – Sofia, it was put into operation in May 2009 • • The Sofia Metro (Bulgarian: Софийски метрополитен, translit. Sofiyskо metro) is the rapid transit network servicing the Bulgarian capital city of Sofia which began operation on January 28, 1998 • • Planned since the 1960s, construction of the Metro was not officially launched until the late 1990s mainly because the city did not experience an urgent need for an underground system in addition to the stalled construction due to lack of sufficient funding • • Additionally, the depth at which the construction work had to be carried out: being one of the oldest cities in Europe, Sofia contains many historical layers underneath its central areas. Evidence of antiquity can be clearly seen at the Serdika Station which exhibits a wealth of unearthed Thracian and Roman ruins and modern architecture • • The construction of the system began from the route that sees the highest volumes of passenger traffic, that can easily reach up to 38,000 at rush hour • • In early 2016 construction began on the third metro line of the Sofia Metro using the technology for classic underground metro with high-power support • • As of 2016, the 35 stations saw over 350,000 riders per day • • Know more?

_________________________ Crawley Edge Boatshed | Perth, Australia | c. 1930s • • The Crawley Edge Boatshed, also known as the Blue House Boat, is a well-recognized and frequently photographed site in Crawley, a suburb of Perth, Western Australia • • Thought to have been originally constructed in the early 1930s to house and shelter boats, it has changed ownership numerous times over the years and undergone various repairs and renovations over the decades after storms and floods • • In 1944 the property leading to the boatshed was purchased from Ivy French by Dr Roland and Joyce Nattrass as a site for the family home. At the time, the real estate agent insisted the boatshed had to be purchased with the block of land, for the additional payment of 5 pounds • • The Nattrass family built a larger, more modern structure around the original boatshed and utilized it until they gave it to Ron Armstrong, a Patron of the Perth Sea Scouts in 1972 • • Ownership was passed again to Barry Krollman in the 1990s – a keen sailor from the Royal Perth Yacht Club – which is located just across Matilda Bay from the boatshed and is the third oldest Yacht Club in Australia with origins tracing back to 1841 • • In early 2001, ownership finally fell back into the hands of the Nattrass family when Perth Lord Mayor Peter Nattrass purchased and extensively renovated the structure • • In 2004, it was re-launched by triple solo-circumnavigator of the world, Jon Sanders and single solo-navigator, David Dicks • • Today thousands of motorists pass the timber boardwalk leading to this unique structure on the banks of Matilda Bay. It is one of the most photographed structures in Western Australia • • Know more?

The company Costa y Cía was in charge of operating the light until in 1907 when the contract ended and responsibility went to the State. At that time the only way to access the place was on horseback, in carriages, or by sea • • In 1907 the surveyor Eugenio Saiz Martínez established the first official plot of land in the area, however, it was not until the late 1920s that the first houses and the first grocery story were built • • A road was built linking the town with Route 9 in 1954, and the first bus service to San Carlos began to operate. Argentine vacationers began arriving in the 1960s and over time the town has become the place chosen by many celebrities to build their holiday homes, which also led to the establishment of exclusive restaurants • • There are several versions about the origin of the town’s name, one is that it comes from an old resident of the area, called José Ignacio Sylveira. Another version is that it refers to the name of an Indian slaughterer or troop of the Jesuit Missions. In 1763, Virrey Cevallos created a stay in the area, where the lands belonged to the fiscal patrimony and he called it "José Ignacio" • • The Lighthouse of José Ignacio is a symbol of the area, it was built on the most salient and rocky end of the peninsula with a focal height of 32.5 meters and a geographical range of 16.5 miles • • Know more?

Its towers stand 106m high and it has a copper roof and bronze doors • • The huge church towers over the surrounding flat country and houses the tiny 38 cm high statue of the Virgin. A large and important organ by French builder Cavaille-Coll stands in the gallery in a state of deterioration, although efforts are underway to see to its restoration • • Additionally the basilica has 15 bells. Each of them carries a name and a motto. They express different notes and have a different weight. The smallest account with 55 kg and the largest 3400 kg, forming among all a total weight of 12,489 kg • • Every year, more than six million people make pilgrimages to the Basilica, many walking there from Buenos Aires.

_________________________ Luvaria Ulisses | Lisbon, Portugal | c. 1925 • • Luvaria Ulisses is a traditional glove shop founded in 1925 by Joaquim Rodrigues – an entrepreneur and city councilman who requested authorization from the Government to construct shops in the neglected area of the Carmo Wall • • Joaquim began developing the area but kept the space no. 87-A, to himself which was a mere 4 m². But this small size has an explanation. At the time, Joaquim reserved that building for his own personal office space, and whose glove shop would soon occupy the entrance • • In the meantime, in 1925, Chiado was already a renowned area, frequented by high society and so the councilor believed it would be a waste to not have that door open for business as well. He began to think about what type of item he could sell in such a small space and the idea of gloves – an accessory extremely in vogue at that time – came to him • • Manufactured by the glove shop itself, the gloves are unique and of extreme quality. In order to preserve its quality and brand name, the creation process remains exactly the same as in the beginning • • Much more than a simple glove shop, this a place is one of the few examples of a traditional 1920's style store, but also because it is the only glove shop in Portugal and one of the few in Europe • • Know more?

_________________________ Spanish Riding School | Vienna, Austria | c. 1735 • • The Spanish Riding School of Vienna, Austria, is a traditional riding school for Lipizzan horses, which perform in the Winter Riding School in the Hofburg. It is a centre for classical dressage and is the oldest of its kind in the world. The headquarters is a tourist attraction in Vienna that offers public performances as well as permitting public viewing of some training sessions • • The presentation builds on four centuries of experience and tradition in classical dressage and leading horses and riders of the school also periodically tour and perform worldwide • • Records show that a wooden riding arena was first commissioned in 1565, but it wasn't until 1729 that Emperor Charles VI commissioned the architect Joseph Emanuel Fischer von Erlach to build the white riding hall used today. Prior to that time, the School operated from a wooden arena at the Josefsplatz • • The Spanish Riding School was named for the Spanish horses that formed one of the bases of the Lipizzan breed, which is used exclusively at the school. Today the horses delivered to the school are bred at the Piber Federal Stud located in western Styria, Austria • • The school has antecedents in military traditions dating as far back as Xenophon in Ancient Greece, and particularly from the military horsemanship of the post-medieval ages when knights attempted to retain their battlefield preeminence by shedding heavy armor and learning to maneuver quickly and with great complexity on a firearms-dominated battlefield • • Traditionally, Lipizzaners at the school have been trained and ridden wholly by men, although the school states that there has never been an official ban on women. In October 2008, two women from the United Kingdom and Austria, passed the entrance exam and were accepted to train as riders at the school – the first women to do so in 436 years • • Know more?
